We discovered another winning dinner: marinated lamb chops. We thought we’d post the recipe in case you’re feeling a little adventurous or perhaps comment with your own suggestions on how to improve it. We’re always on the lookout to try something new and different, especially if it involves grilling. SuperTarget had some nice looking lamb chops so we decided to experiment. Lamb chops are not inexpensive so I was thinking if we messed up it would be an expensive mistake. We paid about $13 a pound. But if you want to treat yourself to something delicious, consider splurging a little. Maybe you know where to get the best deal on lamb.
The prep time takes about 15 minutes and cooking time is 8-10. The majority of time is spent waiting for the meat to marinate. We reviewed several recipes online and decided to go with Ellie Krieger’s recipe from Food Network. She includes a video of the process, but she uses an indoor grilling pan on a gas stove. That would be fine in winter, but I used the outdoor grill on our patio.
Here are the ingredients:
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 lemon, zested (about 1/2 teaspoon)
- 1 lemon, juiced (about 2 tablespoons)
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh oregano leaves, or 2 teaspoons dried oregano
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 8 (4-ounce) lamb loin chops
