Greek-Style Lamb Chops Recipe

    Ingredients:

    For the Marinade:

    • 8 lamb chops
    • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
    • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
    • Salt and black pepper, to taste

    For Garnish:

    • Fresh parsley, chopped
    • Lemon wedges

    Instructions:

    Marinate the Lamb Chops:

    • In a bowl, whisk together the olive oil, fresh lemon juice, minced garlic, dried oregano, dried thyme, dried rosemary, ground cumin, salt, and black pepper.
    • Place the lamb chops in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over them.
    • Ensure each chop is well-coated.
    • Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours, allowing the flavors to meld.

    Preheat the Grill or Pan:

    • Preheat your grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.
    • Make sure the surface is well-oiled to prevent sticking.

    Grill the Lamb Chops:

    • Remove the lamb chops from the marinade and let any excess drip off.
    • Grill the lamb chops for about 3-4 minutes per side for medium-rare, or longer if you prefer them more well-done.
    • Adjust the cooking time based on your desired doneness and the thickness of the chops.

    Rest the Lamb Chops:

    • Once cooked to your liking, remove the lamb chops from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes.
    • This allows the juices to redistribute and keeps the meat juicy.

    Garnish and Serve:

    • Sprinkle the lamb chops with chopped fresh parsley and serve them with lemon wedges on the side.

    Optional: Make a Greek Salad:

    • For a complete Greek experience, serve the lamb chops with a side of Greek salad.
    • Combine tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, feta cheese, Kalamata olives, and a drizzle of olive oil.

    Enjoy:

    • Serve the Greek-style lamb chops hot, and enjoy the tender, flavorful goodness!

    This Greek-Style Lamb Chops recipe captures the essence of Mediterranean flavors, with the aromatic blend of herbs and the succulence of perfectly grilled lamb. Pair it with a side of Greek salad for a wholesome and delightful meal.
