Greek Style Grilled Marinated Lamb Chops
This evening I grilled the beautiful Australian loin lamb chops that I picked up at Costco yesterday. I marinated them with a simple fresh marinade consisting of lemon juice, lemon zest, olive oil, fresh herbs from my patio garden (rosemary, Italian parsley and oregano), garlic, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. I marinated them for about 4 to 5 hours. The flavors permeate the meat and the lemon juice makes the lamb chops even more tender. I served them with fresh asparagus drizzled with macadamia nut oil, seasoned with salt and pepper and then oven roasted for about 20 minutes. I served my Cheddar Black Pepper Biscuits along with the meal. I added baked sweet potatoes for hubby and both sons. It was absolutely delicious. These lamb chops were so meaty that 2 chops was a very generous serving. I'm sending the leftovers home with my oldest son. As a side note, I can't say enough about how nice and evenly our Weber grill cooks our meats. The difference between this and our old grill is like night and day. I snapped a few photos of our meal below. The link to the marinade with the specific amounts is here: Greek Style Grilled Marinated Lamb Chops. Enjoy!
