Grilled Lamb Chops

The past few days we have been eating a lot of chicken. So, for a change today, I decided to cook lamb chops. I saw this recipe on television one day and found it so simple to make that I thought I definitely should give it a try. Believe me it is so delicious that it simply melts in the mouth. My husband is not a great fan of lamb, but he simply loved eating these chops and it gave me great pleasure to watch him enjoy his food.

I also made some nice mango and mixed bell pepper salad to go with the lamb and some tzaziki which is a greek yogurt and cucumber dip. So here goes the recipe...

Grilled Lamb Chops

Lamb chops marinated with dijon mustard and some herbs and grilled to perfection

Preparation Time : 2 hours
Cooking Time : 15 minutes

Serves : 3

1 tbsp of minced garlic
3 tbsp fresh rosemary leaves, chopped finely
1/3 cup chopped coriander leaves (about 1/2 bunch)
2 tbsp dijon mustarn
1/3 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp pepper
6 lamb chops
1 lemon, squeezed for juice
salt to taste

Method :

  • To prepare lamb combine garlic, rosemary, coriander, Dijon mustard, olive oil and pepper together in a medium mixing bowl and smear on chops. Cover and let marinate for at least 1-2 hours.
  • Just before grilling, season the lamb chops generously with salt. Grill on high heat, 5 minutes on each side, including the fat side. Squeeze lemon juice over chops while cooking.
  • Remove from heat and let it rest
  • Serve with some pulao, salad and tzaziki.

  1. Preethi is right. I really don't like lamb, but these chops turned out really good. The meat was tender and juicy and aromatic. I'm looking forward to the next meal with lamb chops. :)
