Naturally buttery and intense flavors hit your palate when you bite into these lamb chops. So simple, yet so good.
  • 6 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, leaves pulled of of stem and minced
  • 6 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves pulled off of stem and minced
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • kosher salt to taste (I used about 1 teaspoon)
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 racks of lamb (about 8 chops each), frenched and cut evenly between the bones
  1. Combine all ingredients together except the lamb to create the marinade
  2. Place the lamb chops in a 9X13 baking dish
  3. Brush the marinade all over the lamb chops
  4. Cover with saran wrap and place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour
  5. Remove lamb from refrigerator for about 15-20 minutes to allow to come to room temperature
  6. Heat up grill pan or grill (make sure it is hot)
  7. Add the chops and sear them for 2 minutes, change angle for criss-cross pattern and sear for another 2 minutes. Flip over and repeat.
  8. Remove and cover lamb with tin foil for a few minutes so it can rest and finish cooking (these times will render the meat slightly above medium. You can reduce or increase the times for desired doneness)
