Recipe by lazyme

From Gourmet magazine, a simple make-ahead recipe that will please your guests. These can be made a day ahead, marinated overnight, and just pop on the grill for a quick company meal.

I really liked the spice combo for the marinade along side the Jalapeno Jelly. It complemented the lamb very well. The make ahead part always makes me happy, too. I will make this again!

  1. In a small bowl stir together the chili powder, the cumin, the thyme, the sugar, the salt, the allspice, and the black pepper.
  2. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the chops, rub it evenly all over the meat, and chill the chops, covered, for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  3. Prepare a grill with glowing coals or preheat the broiler.
  4. On the oiled rack of the grill or on a broiler pan in the broiler, grill or broil the chops 4 inches from the heat for 5 to 7 minutes on each side for medium-rare meat.
  5. Serve the chops with the pepper jelly.
