Jenn's Lamb Chops recipe

  • Put lamb in a large ziplock bag or baking dish, cover lamb with olive oil , crush 3 large garlic cloves, salt and pepper, 2-3 stalks rosemary. 
  • You can add any other aromatic (e.g. onion) if you like. Marinate for at least an hour, or longer. 
  • Grill; lamb should be pink when cooked, just a couple of minutes a side. 
  • Squeeze some lemon during cooking or serve with a slice. 
  • Of course there is also the shortcut of: butter/oil in pan, rosemary , season meat, turn after 2-3 min per side or preferred doneness.
