I’ve had several people ask me if I’m a vegetarian. Nope. Definitely not. A really good burger is probably one of my most favorite things in the world to eat. But it’s not something that I indulge in often. And I don’t cook a lot of meat or seafood at home. And since this little corner of the internet that I call “mine” is a direct reflection of what I’m making (and eating) day in and day out, meat and seafood dishes only make occasional appearances.

Soooo….now that we’ve cleared the air on that issue, I bring you grilled LAMB. Beautiful, succulent, flavorful lamb. Drool.

This recipe is so easy. You only need 7 ingredients. And that’s a legit count. None of this “oh you only need blah number of ingredients, but that doesn’t count salt, pepper, olive oil and blah blah blah”. No way. I would not lie to you people. You literally only need 7 ingredients and a hot grill. Hallelujah! And everything comes together in a snap. You can make the marinade while the grill is pre-heating and the lamb only take about 5 minutes to cook. It’s so easy. I love it for a casual weekday dinner. But trust me when I say people will be impressed if you served this at a weekend barbecue with friends and family.

Since there are so few ingredients here, I definitely recommend splurging at the butcher shop on the best lamb you can buy. I like to buy a small frenched rack of lamb and then cut it into chops when I get home (you can always ask your butcher to cut it for you, if you prefer). Happy Grilling!

Cheers,

Liz

Easy Grilled Ginger-Soy Lamb Chops

Serves 2-4

Easy Grilled Ginger-Soy Lamb Chops

Ingredients

  • 8 lamb chops
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, roughly chopped

Instructions

  1. Take your lamb chops out of the refrigerator and leave them at room temperature to take some of the chill off. Trim any excess fat from the meat. Heat your grill to high.
  2. While your grill is heating, make the marinade. In a small bowl combine the soy sauce, olive oil, brown sugar, fresh ginger and minced garlic. Mix well. Then remove two tablespoons to a clean bowl and set it aside for later (you will use this to serve with the lamb after it has been grilled).
  3. Lightly oil your grill racks. Place the lamb chops on the grill and cook for 2 minutes. Then flip the lamb chops and baste them generously with the marinade. Word of caution: your grill will flare up while you do this. Work CAREFULLY people!
  4. Cook the lamb chops for 2 minutes on the second side. Then flip again and baste them generously a second time. Continue cooking until they are done, just about 1 minute more. Remove from the grill and transfer to serving platter. Garnish with the chopped parsley.
  5. Serve immediately, passing the reserved marinade.

  • HI liz!

    I stumbled upon your blog and I like it very much. Are your recipes for food lovers in general or for people who are just looking to eat and live a healthy lifestyle or maybe both? How many calories are usually in your recipes?

    Reply

    • Thanks for stopping by! I don’t calculate the calories in my recipes. But I’m think there are many apps/programs where you can type in all the ingredients and it spits out a number for you. You could try that if you are interested. And I have a mix of recipes on my site – some healthy and some indulgent. And I try to keep things seasonal. I hope you can find recipes that fit your lifestyle!
