This garlic and herb-rubbed lamb chops recipe features a classic combination of flavors, which really enhances the lamb's natural goodness. Lamb loin chops are easy to find in the market, and can be cooked by grilling, broiling, or even pan-frying.

What You'll Need

  • 8 lamb loin chops
  • 2 tablespoons​ olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary (fresh, chopped)
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 2 tablespoons parsley (fresh, chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons mint (fresh, chopped)
  • salt too taste

How to Make It

In a large baking dish, toss the lamb with the olive oil, garlic, black pepper, red pepper flakes, rosemary, oregano, and thyme. Once evenly coated, cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Lamb chops may be marinated over night.

Preheat grill, grill pan, or broiler. Remove chops from marinade and salt both sides generously. Cook about 5-6 minutes per side for medium-rare (will vary depending on thickness).

Scatter with fresh parsley and mint. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

These loin lamb chops are great paired with this orange mint sauce.
