Grilled Marinated Lamb Chops

These grilled lambs chops are marinated in a simple mix of garlic, rosemary, thyme and olive oil.   Quickly cook on a hot grill to beautiful crisp-on-the-outside and incredibly tender-on-the-inside perfection.  These are so good, they are buttery tender when you bite into them.  Serve with a nice white bean salad, some greens, and rustic bread.   Incredible.

  • 3 large cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh thyme chopped
  • 1/4 cup of good quality olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 8 - 10 lamb rib chops trimmed of excess fat


  1. In a small bowl, stir together the garlic, rosemary, thyme, olive oil and a few grinds of pepper.
  2. Place the lamb chops in a shallow dish and brush them with the olive oil mixture, coating both sides of the chops.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
  4. Prepare a charcoal or gas grill (even electric will work in a pinch) for direct grilling over high heat.
  5. Oil the grill rack.
  6. Using tongs, place the chops over the hottest part of the grill, turning once, until browned and crisp on the exterior and medium-rare at the center when tested with a knife, about 7 - 10 minutes total.
  7. Transfer the chops to warmed plates and sprinkle with salt.
  8. Serve at once!
