Grilled Rosemary Lamb Chops

Total Time

Just writing this recipe makes me want to drool as I remember how delicious it was . . . mmmmm, lamb. My husband who loathes sheep is now ready to raise some so that we can have this recipe more often. Easy. Yummy. Lamby.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix ingredients except for lamb in a bowl.
  2. Place the chops in a container to marinate. I use a zip lock bag.
  3. Pour ingredients over chops, making sure both sides are well covered.
  4. Let marinate overnight. The longer the better, but give them at least one hour.
  5. Let chops come to room temperature (approximately 20 minutes) before grilling. Discard marinade.
  6. Cook on the bbq or under the broiler. For medium try about 3 1/2 minutes per side. I have also used venison chops with this recipe with great success.

I don't buy lamb very often because it is soooo expensive, but this recipe is excellent! It takes away that "wild" taste of the meat, and gives it a little bit of a zing!! If you are looking for an excellent lamb chop experience, you will make this recipe more than once! Thanks!

Wonderful recipe Sandy! I'm with your husband, I used to loathe lamb also but my boyfriend loves it. This recipe is delicious! I made as directed but added some chopped mint from my garden to the marinade. Thanks for sharing!

I have made these a few times and this is the only way I will eat lamb chops! They come out very tender. I also add kosher salt instead of sea salt and extra minced garlic. SO good! I try to marinate them overnight as well, but I have marinated them 6-8 hours (put them in a ziploc with all of the ingredients in the morning and grilled them for dinner) and they were still awesome. Thank you Sandy!
