Serves: 4 // Prep time: 20 minutes | Grilling time: 23 to 28 minutes

Grocery List

Fresh Produce

  • .25 oz fresh rosemary
  • .25 oz fresh thyme
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 2 lb new potatoes, each about 1½" in dia

Meat / Poultry / Seafood

  • 8 lamb loin chops, each about 4 oz and 1¼" thick

Oil and Spices

  • .25 cups extra-virgin olive oil
  • .75 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp kosher salt

Ingredients

Seasoning

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • ¾ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 8 lamb loin chops, each about 4 ounces and 1¼ inches thick, trimmed of excess fat
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 pounds new potatoes, each about 1½ inches in diameter, quartered

Instructions

  1. Roughly chop the garlic and then sprinkle the salt on top. Using both the sharp edge and the flat side of the knife blade, crush the garlic and salt together to create a paste. Add the remaining seasoning ingredients and chop them together.

  2. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F).

  3. Lightly brush or spray the chops on both sides with oil. Spread half of the seasoning mixture on both sides of the lamb chops. Allow the chops to stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before grilling.

  4. Put the cut potatoes in a medium bowl. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of oil over the top and add the remaining half of the seasoning mixture. Stir the potatoes to coat them evenly.

  5. Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the potatoes over direct medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until tender, 15 to 20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes. Remove from the grill and keep warm while you grill the lamb.

  6. Grill the lamb chops over direct medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until cooked to your desired doneness, about 8 minutes for medium rare, turning once or twice (if flare-ups occur, move the chops temporarily over indirect heat). Remove from the grill and let rest for 3 to 5 minutes. Serve warm with the potatoes.

Our favorite recipe for Lamb Loin Chops!

This is another of our "go to" recipes whenever we see a good deal on lamb loin chops. Just amazing! And quite quick and easy even with making the herb garlic paste. Really delicious.


BTW - Another household favorite is the LEG OF LAMB WITH MOROCCAN SPICES from Jamie Purviance Weber's Way To Grill. Awesome marinade for butterflied leg of lamb. I see that one is not currently in your online recipe collection.

Great Meal

Very easy to make. i was shooting for medium and get my chops a little over done, but flavor was spot on. Will add this to favorites.
