Just when you can’t eat another piece of grilled chicken or hamburger on the barbie, lamb chops are a welcome change – plus they are so easy to make and really delicious. Perfect with a giant salad or some grilled veggies of your choice.
RECIPE: Rosemary Grilled Lamb Chops
• 2 lbs lamb chops
• 4 cloves garlic, chopped
• 3 TBSP fresh, chopped rosemary
• olive oil
• salt and pepper
Toss lamb in olive oil, garlic and rosemary. Salt and pepper each side. Grill over direct heat 3-4 minutes per side, flipping only once. This should be medium, depending on your grill. Tent with foil for 10 minutes to let the meat rest.
• 1/4 cup vinegar (white wine, cider, champagne, red wine)
• 1/4 cup raw sugar
• 1/4 cup water
• 1/3 cup chopped mint
• 1 tsp chopped hot red pepper, chopped
• 1 clove garlic, chopped
• 1/4 cup olive oil
• salt and pepper to taste
Muddle together sugar and mint in a bowl. Add remaining ingredients and then whisk in olive oil. Taste and adjust sweetness, saltiness and sour levels to your liking. Divide into small bowls so each plate has their own for dipping. Enjoy!
