Officially, finally grilling season! Also known as, “No way, it’s too hot! I’m not going near my stove!” That being said, you don’t want to linger over the hot grill too long either. Lamb chops to the rescue!
Grilled Lamb Chops
1-2 racks Lamb Chops (frenched and cut into chops)
For the marinade:
1/2 cup Fresh Lemon Juice
1 tablespoon Lemon Zest
2 tablespoons Chopped Rosemary
1/2 cup Garlic Olive Oil
Place all ingredients into a mason jar and shake well.
Place the lamb chops into a zip top bag and pour over the marinade. Allow to set out a room temperature for about 45 minutes.
(you never want to put cold meat on a hot grill. You’ll wind up with charred out side and raw inside.)
Heat your gas grill to full whack (high) about 500-600 degrees.
Place your chops on the grill. They will only take about 2 minutes per side. Allow the meat to rest for about 10 minutes before you serve.
