Lemony Lamb Chops - Grilled

Lamb is usually a very tasty meat, but can be expensive. We don't eat it too often - perhaps a lovely Roast Lamb Sunday Lunch or a recipe like this below. I often look out for special offers at my supermarket, Farmer's Market or butcher ... depending on where I maybe shopping! If you are not too familiar with the different cuts of lamb, have a read here

If you'd like to give this recipe a try, here is what you will need.
Using 12 small chops
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp. fresh thyme - or rosemary if preferred
1 pinch salt
1 pinch black pepper
12 lean lamb loin chops
cooking spray

1. In small bowl, mix olive oil, lemon juice, and thyme. Season with salt and pepper.
2. In shallow baking dish, place lamb chops and brush with seasoned olive oil. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.
3. Preheat grill to high. Lightly coat grill grate with cooking spray. Place lamb chops on grill, and discard marinade. Cook 10 minutes, turning once, until internal temperature reaches 145°F. (Meat is cooked through)

Lamb's expensive over here as well. The lemony recipe sounds nice! Cheers

Love your website. There is a problem with one of the links. Diet Doctor points to which is the Swedish version. Just changed late last week. I only found many of the other websites because you list them.
Again, I love your website. Your have such good information and references.
I am one of those people without internet or email at home. Your site is one of the few reasons I will have to get internet when I retire. Carry on with the good fight, holiday season is coming. I dread the potlucks and get-togethers where the choice is load up with food or look antisocial. Carbs have bad effect on my carb appetite even after just one bad meal, and my A1C goes up.
I cling to your website like a life preserver. Love and hugs, Margaret from Vermont

I have to admit, I hardly ever eat lamb...but coincidentally, I did have lamb in mint sauce yesterday.
I am a "guilty meat eater"...wish I were a vegetarian, but still get cravings for meat!
I have never thought of lamb and lemon before...but now I have seen your recipe, it looks wonderful!

Love & Hugs xoxoxo

My mother would often slice lemons and add them onto lamb while cooking, rather than use juice.

only slightly confused said...

Like the wool, not a fan of the meat lol.

Hard to beat lamb chops but we're a bit "meated out" after so much lamb in Greece.

Enjoy your weekend Jan and Eddie.
