On friday, my husband's friend gave us some lamb ribs. So, i thought this would be a great weekend for grilling!!!!! I got this recipe from food network's Giada Di Laurentis. Rosemary and thyme are just a perfect blend of herb for the gamey taste of lamb.
very excited to share this simple yet delicious meal that you can make for your family. the recipe calls for a lamb chops, but the ribs are just as good. Also, i used dried herbs since i didnt have any fresh ones on hand and it turned out good as well.
GRILLED LAMB CHOPS
- 2 large garlic cloves, crushed
- 1 T fresh rosemary leaves
- 1 t fresh thyme leaves
- pinch cayenne pepper
- coarse sea salt
- 2 T extra-virgin olive oil
- 6 lamb chops, about 3/4 inch thick
In a food processor(or you can use a mortar & pestle and just mix everything) fitted with a metal blade add the garlic, rosemary, thyme, cayenne and salt. Pulse until combined. pour olive oil and pulse into a paste. Rub the paste on both sides of the lamb chops amd let them marinate for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator. remove from refrigerator and allow the chops to come to room temperature, about 20 mins.
Heat a grill pan(or in my case i used the outdoor grill) over high heat until almost smoking, add the chops and sear for about 2 mins. Flip the chops over and cook for another 3 mins. for medium-rare and 3 1/2 mins for medium.
Serve with rice or veggie of your choice..Enjoy!!!
