Recipe type: Entree
Serves: 4-6
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1-2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 1-2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 frenched racks of lamb, cut between ribs into chops
  1. Combine all ingredients except lamb in a food processor or blender and combine well. Lay chops in a baking dish and cover with marinade, turning to ensure even coating. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Heat grill to high and grill chops for 2 minutes per side, transferring to a clean baking dish as they are cooked. Cover and refrigerate the partially cooked chops until ready to serve.
  3. To serve, reheat in a 300 degree oven just until warmed through, about 15 minutes. This final cooking in the oven will also finish cooking the chops from rare to medium rare.
To prepare a large volume of chops for a party, just increase the marinade in proportion to the chops, so one portion of marinade for each two racks of lamb. Each rack of lamb yields 8 lollipop lamb chops.
