The first time I made these, was so glad I had french bread on hand to mop the juice off my plate. Be sure to serve these chops with something like rice, or bread on the side to sop up all of the jus. If you like lamb, you'll LOVE these flavor packed, super easy to prepare, figure friendly chops! This is a year- round dish that you can use the broiler in the winter to cook if you live in an area where outdoor grilling not an option, or if the weather does not cooperate and you can't go outdoors. Enjoy!

How To Make grilled rosemary lamb chops

  • 1
    Put all ingredients except meat into small bowl and mix well to incorporate the garlic and rosemary. Note: the finer you mince the garlic and rosemary the more it is able to flavor the chops. Besides if you dont mince the rosemary well, it would be like eating branches off a Christmas tree. Icky!

    Place the meat onto a non-reactive(glass or platic) 13x9x2 baking dish. Pour marinade over the meat and cover.
  • 3
    Allow lamb to marinate in refrigerator for 4 hours, turning the meat occasionally for even flavor distribution.
  • 4
    About 30 minutes before serving, remove meat from refrigerator and allow to rest at room temp (still covered). While meat is warming, start the grill/light the coals. Charcoal should have an even layer of whitish ash all over before you begin cooking.

    Once grill reaches medium-high heat add chops, and cover the grill. DO NOT fuss with the meat once it is on the grill. Flip ONCE and leave it alone to continue cooking. Chops require 5 minutes per side cook time , or to desired doneness. Remove from heat, and cover to allow rest time 7-10 minutes.

    Once resting time is over, serve at once
