Fresh spices really make the flavors pop.
- 2 bone-in lamb loin chops (locally best found in butcher case at Harris Teeter, Fresh Market or Whole Foods)
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt
- zest of one lemon
- 2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
- 1 tbsp olive oil
Brush mixture onto all surfaces of lamb choices - cover and let sit for 20 minutes.
Place rack in oven near top - about 3-4 inches below broiler element. Turn oven to high broil, line baking sheet with foil. Broil chops for 5 minutes per side for medium rare (with chops being 1.5 to 2 inches thick).
Take care when turning, some of the rendering fat may smoke a bit.
Shown served with steamed brocolli.
Rated: 3+ months - lamb is tender, chew well!
