Here is a blog post that I never published but thought you would like it because you can certainly make lamb chops on the grill during the summer months. It was a little unusual that I was making them in the cold month of March in Michigan. Grilled Mediterranean Lamb Chops are Easy To Make. You can marinate them for a few hours or not. The longer you marinate the chops the better. For summer months I recommend grilling them outside. We use a charcoal grill. This fast recipe will grill in a short time and is quite delicious.
Time to marinade the Lamb Chops for my husband’s birthday dinner. My husband would rather that I cook than to go out to eat so even though I would prefer to go out I will make one of his favorite dishes and that is lamb chops.
It’s the end of March in Michigan and still too cold to grill outside (some people even reported snow today) so I’ll be using my stove grill. But first I’ll marinate the lamb chops in olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper.
Some other flavors of Mediterranean cooking are oregano, thyme, feta, red onions, tomatoes, basil, olives and couscous. So you can see that the Mediterranean Lamb Chops along with the Greek Salad and the couscous all fit right into Mediterranean cuisine, making this the perfect Mediterranean meal.
Marinate for 1 to 2 hours for best flavor but chops can be grilled immediately. Grill in grill pan or on charcoal grill or gas grill.
Grilled Mediterranean Lamb Chops are great served with Tomato Greek Salad with Feta and Basil, with Couscous and Green Beans.
