Lamb Loin Chops in Honey, Madeira and Mint

These Lamb Loin Chops in Honey, Madeira and Mint are so flavorful and it comes together in no time. An amazingly rich and delicious grilled lamb. I put the reserved marinade in a saucepan and cooked it down to a nice syrup consistency to baste the grilled chops with before serving.

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs lamb loin chops
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup Madeira
  • 1/2 cup orange honey
  • 3 tbsp of fresh chopped mint
  • pinch kosher salt
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes

Instructions

  • In a bowl whisk the olive oil, honey, Madeira, salt and red pepper flakes thoroughly.
  • Strip the mint leaves off the stems and chop coarsely. Mix all and pour into a large Ziploc bag.
  • Add the lamb chops to the bag and let marinate at room temperature for 2 hours.
  • Preheat the grill to 400°F.
  • Grill one side for 3 minutes then turn down to 350°F, flip the chops and grill for 5 minutes more.
  • Although, grill to your liking, but for a nice medium with a little pink I do 5 minutes per side over medium heat.
