Author Notes: This is my favorite way to do lamb chops - marinated in lemon, olive oil and a Greek rub and then grilled to medium rare. I usually pair them with a simple marinated salad. I use loin chops but rib chops are also great and require less grilling time. We did 30 of them for Easter and 12 last night. This recipes calls for 8.inpatskitchen

Serves 3 to 4

For the Greek rub

  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  1. Place all ingredients in a spice grinder or mini processor and process until finely ground.

For the chops

  • 8 loin lamb chops cut 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick
  • 3 tablespoons of the Greek rub
  • Zest of one lemon
  • Juice of two lemons
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Lemon wedges for serving
  1. In a covered container or large plastic freezer bag, place all ingredients and marinate in the refrigerator for 3 to 6 hours.
  2. On a hot grill, grill the chops until slightly charred and cooked to your desired doneness, flipping occasionally. Serve with the lemon wedges.

JUST discovered these. We now have a new favorite in a family with a NUMBER of picky eaters (as well as a number of food enthusiasts....!) I substituted humongous fresh, organic garlic cloves for dried, and put everything but the olive oil into the mini-processor, slathered the chops with the olive oil and then the rub, left it in the fridge for a couple of hours then brought it all to room temperature for an hour. Grilled. Stuffed our faces :~)

So glad you enjoyed them...they're probably our favorite grilled meat. I've used fresh garlic often too. Thanks so much!
