Ingredients

  • 6 lamb chops , about 3/4-inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves
  • 2 large garlic cloves , crushed
  • Creole seasoning (replace with paprika)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper

Instructions

  • Salt and pepper lamb chops . Set aside.
  • In a food processor or using a mortar and pestle, blend rosemary, garlic, creole seasoning or paprika, thyme and white pepper.
  • Marinate the lamb chops with the herb mixture for at least an hour. For best results, let it marinate overnight in the fridge. The longer the better.
  • When ready to grill, bring lamb chops to a room temperature. Remove marinate from chops.
  • Heat up a grill, cast iron, grill pan until hot. Cook lamb chops  for about 3 1/2 -5 minutes per side flipping once, until browned and cooked to desired doneness .
  • When the lamb chops are done to your liking, take them off the grill and let them rest for about 10 minutes.

Notes

  • When choosing lamb meat perfect for quick grilling, you choose around these three: rib, loin, or sirloin chops. Shoulder or leg chops need a marinade to make it tender enough for grilling. You can view other lamb cuts HERE.
  • Trim off any hard pieces of fat around the edges of the chops to reduce the flareups.
  • Let it marinate in the fridge in a dish or container covered with plastic wrap.
  • Adjust grilling time depending on your preferred doneness of the meat.
  • When you're done grilling, let the lamb chops rest for 10 minutes before serving them.
