I love these herb-marinated lamb chops! The chops are marinated in a simple garlic and herb mixture, then seared until perfectly cooked, juicy, and succulent.
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil to fry
6 lamb chops, rib chops
Salt and pepper to season
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon fresh thyme, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
½ tablespoon fresh mint, finely chopped
1 tablespoon dried oregano, Greek oregano preferably
lemon wedges to serve
How to make Herb Marinated Lamb Chops
Step 1: Generously season the chops with coarse salt and freshly ground pepper.
Step 2: In a small bowl, place the thyme, oregano, rosemary, mint, garlic, and olive oil. Mix well until blended.
Step 3: Over the lamb, pour the marinade. Massage the marinade into the meat and set aside for about 20 minutes at room temperature.
Step 4: Into a hot large skillet over high heat, drizzle the olive oil. Once the oil is hot, adjust the to medium-high. Add the chops and sear for about 3 minutes until the first side is well-browned. Flip the chops, and continue to sear the other side for additional 3 to 5 minutes until the internal temperature of the chops reach 57 degrees C or 135 degrees F for medium rare.
Step 5: To a warm plate, transfer the chops and let them rest for about 5 minutes.
Step 6: Serve the lamb chops with lemon wedges on the side and with your fave side dishes. Enjoy!
To cook the BBQ, prepare the grill. For direct cooking, preheat the grill over medium heat. Lay the chops on the preheated grill and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side until slightly charred, making sure to keep the lid closed. Before serving, let the chop rest for about 5 minutes. Then, serve with some lemon wedges on the side.
