Incredible Marinated Lamb Chops

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Elmotoo

Developed for RSC#14. A really fabulous marinade makes for really incredible lamb chops. My guinea pigs are insisting I make this again soon! Crazy simple with loads of flavor. Neither preparation time nor cooking time include time to marinate.

Lamb chops are not available nearby so I replaced them with center cut pork chops. I was wanting to try the marinade which does implement 5 contest ingredients. The marinade takes only minutes to prepare & I poured it onto the chops and let it marinate for around 4 hours. We felt the marinade on the chops paired well. The flavor was slightly herby & the chops were very tender even after cooking until well done on a contact grill. The creme fraiche sauce however was less successful with us. We both tasted it & didn't use any more. It was very tart & the vinegar was predominant. Maybe it would be more successful paired with the lamb as intended. Good luck in the contest!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all marinade ingredients in blender & puree.
  2. Reserve 1/4c marinade. Pour remaining marinade into a ziptop bag with the lamb chops & refrigerate 2 hours or more.
  3. Combine 1/4c marinade with 1/4c creme fraiche. Taste for seasoning, add salt, pepper or rosemary as needed. Set aside.
  4. Preheat grill.
  5. When grill is ridiculously hot, spray with oil. Put lamb chops on grill & walk away for 2 minutes. Turn them over & leave them be another 2 minutes. Remove to serving plates. They should be rare with crispy grill marks.
  6. Arrange 2 chops per plate and add a dollop of marinade/creme fraiche mixture.
