    lazyme's Note:

    This is a really simple and delicious meal. Since lamb chops can vary so much in size, please adjust cooking times accordingly. For the tomatoes, a disposable aluminum pan works really well. Cook time includes marinating time.

      Marinate lamb, chilled, turning occasionally, 1 hour.
    4. 4

    7. 7

    8. 8
      Transfer to a platter and keep warm, covered.
    9. 9
      Cook tomatoes (still on vine, if using) in disposable roasting pan, covered with grill lid, carefully turning, until softened and just beginning to split, about 8 minutes.
    10. 10
      Drizzle balsamic vinegar over tomatoes, turning to coat, then cook, uncovered, until vinegar is reduced by about half, about 2 minutes.
    11. 11
      Remove from grill.
    12. 12
      Bring reserved marinade with any lamb juices accumulated on platter to a boil in a small heavy saucepan, covered.
    13. 13
      Drizzle lamb with marinade and serve with tomatoes.
    14. 14
      Cooks' note:
    15. 15
      Lamb and tomatoes can also be grilled in batches in a lightly oiled well-seasoned ridged grill pan over moderately high heat (tomatoes will take less time to soften, about 3 minutes).

      So easy and oh so delicious. This makes a beautiful presentation. The meat was well seasoned and how can you possibly go wrong with balsamic vinegar. This was served with roasted asparagus salad and brown rice for a wonderful meal. Made for ZWT 8 and the Gluten Free challenge.
