Juicy, rosemary grilled lamb chops have only a few ingredients and are always a crowd please!
I’ve met a lot of skeptics who tell me it’s impossible to make a five-star entrée at home. Of course, I beg to differ!I definitely don’t think you should have to go to an expensive restaurant in order to have a delectable main course like this recipe.
Lamb has such good flavor, and some people actually prefer it over steak. Chef Jamie Oliver shares a helpful guide to lamb cuts. It’s a great resource to check out and pin for the future. In addition to using the guide, I suggest you ask your butcher for some guidance if you’ve never purchased lamb before.
Even though lamb chops happen to be the most expensive cut of lamb, they are also the most tender and what we use to make this recipe. Did you know that when several lamb chops are together, they’re called a rack? I recommend purchasing a rack and separating them at home.
The seasoning in this lamb recipe is quite distinct with its piney rosemary shining through and hints of woodsy, peppery lemon. My mouth is watering as I type this!
While there are many methods to cooking lamb chops, grilling is the quickest, which produces caramelized, tender meat.
Consider lamb chops as the focal point in your entrée, meaning you’re going to complement the meal with one or two less dramatic side dishes.
How to Grill Lamb Chops:
Cut the lamb chops in between each bone. Use a sharp knife to cut evenly. Place in a baking dish and marinate with oil, rosemary and salt for about 30 minutes.
Grill the lamb chops on high heat for 5 minutes per side. We use this wood charcoal which adds a delicious, smokey flavor. You can also use a gas grill.
This really is the perfect lamb chop recipe when you are looking to make something extra special for your loved ones.
