For a delicious and aromatic dish, try these Rosemary & Garlic Lamb Chops. This recipe combines the savory flavors of lamb with the fragrant notes of rosemary and garlic, creating a mouthwatering experience that's perfect for any occasion. The secret lies in the marinade, which infuses the meat with aromatic herbs and a hint of citrus. Grilled to perfection, these lamb chops are juicy and tender, making them an impressive yet straightforward dish to prepare.

  • Serves 4

Preparation Items:

  • 8 lamb chops (about 2 lbs total weight)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation Method:

  1. Marinade: In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, minced garlic, chopped rosemary, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and black pepper.
  2. Marinating: Place the lamb chops in a zip-top bag or shallow dish and pour the marinade over them. Make sure each chop is well-coated. Allow the chops to marinate for at least 1-2 hours, ideally overnight, in the refrigerator.
  3. Grilling: Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Remove the lamb chops from the marinade, letting excess marinade drip off. Place the chops on the grill and cook for about 3-4 minutes per side for medium-rare or until desired doneness is achieved.
  4. Rest & Serve: Once grilled to your liking, remove the lamb chops from the grill and let them rest for about 5 minutes to allow the juices to redistribute. Serve with a side of mint sauce or tzatziki if desired.

Preparation Time:

  • Total time: 2 hours 15 minutes (with 2 hours marination)
  • Active time: 15 minutes
  • Passive time (marinating & resting): 2 hours

Drink Pairing:

  • A full-bodied red wine like a Cabernet Sauvignon or a Shiraz pairs beautifully with the rich flavors of the lamb. These wines will complement the rosemary and garlic while standing up to the robust taste of the meat.
