Grilled Lamb Chops are juicy and flavorful. Just three ingredients and grill them!
Grilled Lamb Chops
Grilled Lamb Chops are a favorite anytime at our house. The “chop” cut of lamb is fairly lean and is just the right amount of meat for me. But Lamb is high in calories, so don’t eat too many.
Buy Local If Possible
We try to buy local when we can, but no matter what time of year, locally grown lamb is always more expensive than Australian lamb. In our area of the Shenandoah Valley (Virginia) there are not many sheep farmers. We have loads of turkey farmers—and a sign proclaiming Rockingham County as the turkey capital of the world—but not many lambs. When lamb is available, I stock up and put some in the freezer.
One good thing about Virginia is we have a bit milder weather with less winter snow, so we can grill out most days. Of course, we grill outside more often in the summer!
Don is the grill master. Although I can do it, I prefer to let him handle grilling outside. The meat tastes so good when grilled on our Char-Broil Grill (affiliate link), which Don loves, by the way. But if I make meat, I use my personal favorite grill, the George Foreman Indoor Grill (affiliate link), a skillet on top of the stove, or the oven. With the indoor grill, it takes about half the time to grill a chop (or any meat) as it does to make it outside. That’s because it cooks both sides at the same time.
What’s the Menu?
Grilled Lamb Chops are delicious with a little mint jelly, some steamed asparagus and Oven Browned Potatoes. Sounds like a fabulous supper, ai’na?
I know you’re gonna wanna eat these. I know I do!
What Do You Need?
For this recipe you need an outdoor grill or an indoor grill and a meat fork. Simple. For best results, use a meat thermometer (affiliate link).
