Grilled Lamb Chops Ingredients

For The Lamb

  • Lamb chops (8 pieces). I love using Costco's Frenched lamb rack whenever I make lamb chops, but you can use loin and rib chops also.

For The Lamb Marinade

  • Olive oil (1/4 cup)
  • Garlic (4 cloves, minced)
  • Fresh rosemary (2 tbsp, finely chopped) 
  • Lemon (1, juiced and zested)
  • Dijon mustard (1 tbsp)
  • Salt & pepper (to taste)

Grilled Lamb Chops Recipe Instructions

1. Slice the lamb rack into chops

If you're using a frenched rack of lamb, you'll need to use a sharp knife to separate each lamb chop from the rack.

2. Prepare the marinade

3. Marinate the lamb

4. Grill the lamb chops

Grill your lamb chops with the lid closed, turning every five minutes or so, until they hit an internal temperature of 135F for medium-rare. This should take 10-15 minutes.

5. Rest & serve
