Ingredients

  • 2 lbs lamb loin chops
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lemon zest and juice
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary leaves, chopped
  • 2 tsp dried oregano (See Note 1)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • black pepper
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes

Instructions

  • Zest the entire peel of the lemon and extract the juice. Put in a bowl and mix with the olive oil and melted butter and whisk to mix thoroughly.
  • Add the minced garlic, chopped rosemary leaves, oregano, kosher salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes. Mix all and pour over lamb chops in bowl OR into a large sealable plastic bag, and let marinate at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
  • Prep your grill to 350°F (See Note 2). Grill to your liking, although for a nice medium with a little pink I do 3-4 minutes per side until internal temp reaches 130°F over medium heat.

Notes

  1. Or substitute 1 teaspoon of fresh oregano leaves, chopped.
  2. Can't grill? Use a cast iron skillet and cook them 3-4 minutes per side until internal temp reaches 130°F.
