These Garlic and Herb Lamb Chops Will Make You Swoon

I use garlic just about every time I cook, but it’s usually just to add flavor in the background of a dish. Unless I’m making something like shrimp scampi, it’s rarely the star. 

Today is National Garlic Day, though, so some of my friends and I are sharing recipes that really emphasize the flavor of garlic.

I decided to celebrate in style with broiled lamb chops bursting with the flavors of garlic, fresh herbs, and lemon juice.

Unlike garlic, lamb chops aren’t something I cook very often. Every time I do make them, I wonder why I don’t buy them more frequently. They’re so easy to make!

They’re great cooked on the grill, but using the broiler makes them practically fool-proof. After just 10 minutes, they’ll be browned and crisp on the edges but tender and perfectly cooked throughout.

(If you love lamb chips, be sure to check out my recipe for broiled lamb chops with vanilla balsamic glaze, too. It’s a new favorite!)

Lamb Chops

Ingredients

Since these lamb chops are so simple, you’ll want to use the best ingredients you can get your hands on.

Fresh herbs really make a difference in this recipe and I like to use local garlic from the farmer’s market or co-op, which I find has a more pungent flavor and a softer texture than what I buy at the grocery store.

This recipe definitely uses a ton of garlic (you might want to buy some after dinner mints) and it’s the predominant flavor of this recipe, but the lamb definitely holds it’s own and the lemon juice helps tie it all together.

My favorite way to serve these lamb chips is with potatoes au gratin and roast asparagus. Broil the lamb while the potatoes rest.

They’re also great with couscous, mashed cauliflower, or even on top of a salad with feta and kalamata olives.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 generous pinch sea salt
  • 1 pound lamb chops

Instructions

  • If your broiler is in your oven (not in a separate section below the main one), place your oven rack in the second-highest position. Heat the broiler to high.
  • Combine the olive oil and lemon juice in a bowl or dish that's large enough to fit the lamb chops. Crush the garlic in a press (or use the flat side of a chef's knife to smash it, then finely mince) and add it to the dish. Stir in the rosemary, parsley, and salt.
  • Add the lamb chops, turning to coat. Arrange the lamb chops in a single layer on a broiler pan. Broil for 5 minutes.
  • Turn the lamb chops over and spoon on more of the marinade, so each lamb chops is coated with garlic and herbs. Broil another 5 minutes.

    One favorite? How does one choose. I will have to go with Garlic Honey. Take 30 cloves of garlic and put them in a quart jar, fill the jar with honey and watch the garlic flavor get pulled out of the garlic and put in the honey. Use the honey on ice cream, on grilled chicken, pork, and I bet it would be great put on this lamb and broiled another 45 to 60 seconds. I am trying this lamb. Okay I have to give you another one. One of my other favorite garlic dishes is a Cart Driver.
