How To Cook Lamb Chops

There are some meats that I love so much when they're cooked perfectly that I find them intimidating to make at home. Lamb is one of those kinds of meat that when it is prepared well, it can be extraordinarily delicious.

Ingredients

  • 4

    Lamb chops (rib or loin)

  • 1

    tbsp Fresh rosemary leaves

  • 2

    tbsp Olive oil

  • Salt and black pepper

Instructions

  • If you can, be picky about the chops you buy. Thicker is better with lamb chops.

  • With a sharp kitchen knife, trim off any extra fat around the edges of the chops.

  • You want to keep the fat on the inside of the chop since it is key to that great lamb flavor.

  • Salt each chop with a pinch of salt.

  • Then, let the salted chops rest for at least 30-45 minutes.

  • You can add other ingredients to your taste, like garlic cloves, lemon juice, red pepper or fresh thyme.

  • By the end of the 30-45 minute period of rest, the chop is ideally prepared.

  • While your salted chops are resting, get your grill ready to go.

  • You want to have two different zones of heat in your grill, a high heat hot zone, and a lower heat cool zone.

  • Make sure to clean the grill off well with your grill brush & carefully oil the grill grate with a little olive oil.

  • You've already salted your chops so now it's just time to add the oil and other flavors.

  • Brush both sides of the chops with oil and then sprinkle on some pepper and chopped rosemary.

  • you want to start on the cooler zone of the grill.

  • For medium, the end temperature you want is 155° F. For well done, you want around 165° F.

  • It's time to let the chops rest one more time.

  • This rest time will keep the lamb chops as juicy as possible.

  • Give them about 10 minutes, then serve.
