Recipe

You can’t miss with well-seasoned lamb chops. The type of chops to use is entirely up to you. I love the way the rack chops look with their long rib bones exposed, but you can use shoulder chops just as well. Figure on two chops per person.

Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients

FOR THE MARINADE

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes, optional

FOR THE CHOPS

  • 12 loin or rib lamb chops
  • Rosemary sprigs for garnish

Directions

TO MAKE THE MARINADE:

In a small bowl, whisk together all the marinade ingredients. Rub the marinade on the chops, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or overnight.

TO PREPARE THE CHOPS:

Prepare a fire and allow the coals to die down to a medium-hot temperature or preheat a gas grill to medium-high.

Cook the chops for 6 to 7 minutes per side or until firm and resilient to the touch for medium, about 5 minutes per side for rare-pink. Make a slit into one of the chops to test for doneness to your liking, but take them off the grill while still slightly pink as they will continue to cook as they rest. Transfer them to a platter and serve with a rosemary sprig on top.
