Grilled Loin or Rib Lamb Chops with Herbs and Garlic
Lamb loin and rib chops are the finest lamb cuts for grilling, but they require attention during cooking, especially because of their small size—and because it’d be a shame to ruin a costly cut of meat.
Why This Recipe Works
Lamb loin and rib chops are often cut quite thick—about 1 1/2 inches was the thickness we often encountered—so the challenge in developing our grilled lamb chops recipe was to cook them through without overbrowning the exterior. We found that when grilling the chops for our grilled lamb chops recipe, using a two-level fire was best—the chops could be seared on the hotter side of the grill, then moved to the cooler side to cook through. This method also reduced potential flare-ups (which often occur with lamb).
