  • About This Recipe

    “This simple treatment for lamb chops makes for a terrific dinner. Prep time includes marinating time, although you don’t have to marinate it that long; even 30 minutes is good.”

  • 2clovesgarlic, minced

  • About 4 hours before you wish to serve dinner, prepare marinade: in a mixing bowl, whisk together the vinegar, fresh herbs and garlic, oil, salt and pepper.
  • Pour this mixture into a large zip-lock freezer bag, add lamb chops, squeeze out all the air and seal; place in a glass dish and refrigerate, turning it over at least once; let marinate for three to four hours.
  • Alternatively, if you don’t have a zip-lock bag, marinate lamb chops in a covered glass dish.
  • Shortly before you wish to serve dinner, grease grill rack and preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  • Reserve marinade and place chops on preheated greased grill and cook, with a closed lid, for about 15 minutes for medium-rare– baste with reserved marinade and turn once during cooking.

  • “This recipe was so easy, but made a wonderful addition to simple grilled lamb chops.They were tender and flavorful.I think that I will make this recipe again, but will use red wine instead of red wine vinegar to smooth out the flavor.”

  • “Never made lamb chops before (or any type of lamb).This was easy and delicious.My husband and I will definitely make this recipe again.”

  • “My lamb loin chops were small so 8 did 3 of us just right and they marinated for 4 hours and were cooked on the indoor grill to perfection with the DM’s and the DS’s nearly well done and mine with just a nice bit of pink in them.Served with recipe #294234 and recipe #441646 and some steamed green beans on the side.thank you Lennie, made for All You Can Cook Buffet”

  • “Loved these! I had 6 loin chops about 1 inch thick. I marinated them all day and threw them on the BBQ for about 5 minutes a side. So glad to be cooking outside again! Thanks for another great recipe Lennie.”
