Grilled Rosemary Lamb Chops

Three grilled and seasoned lamb chops lay on grill grates.

Lamb chops are a wonderful meat that only needs simple seasoning before being grilled. This recipe uses a rosemary-based homemade rub. The lamb goes great with grilled vegetables, grilled bread, or a side salad. 

Make sure you plan ahead so the chops have time to marinate before cooking. You will want to chill them for at least one hour or up to overnight. It is also important that you let the chops come up to room temperature before you grill them. 

Lamb chops, similar to steaks, need to be cooked to your preferred doneness. The method in the recipe has easy instructions. You can adjust based on the heat of your grill, the thickness of the lamb, or starting temperature, all of which can impact how long it takes to cook. This is why a thermometer is so important in the process.

Ingredients

  • 8 lamb chops
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon cracked black pepper
  • oil

Equipment

  • grill

Directions

  • Trim the lamb chops as necessary.
  • Combine the garlic powder, dried rosemary, sea salt, and black pepper to create a rub.
  • Layout all the lamb chops and drizzle with oil then rub it evenly over the meat. Sprinkle with the rosemary rub. Wrap the lamb chops in plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour and up to overnight.
  • Remove the lamb chops from chilling and place them next to the grill while heating the grill. This will help bring the meat to room temperature quicker.
  • When the grill is at a medium cooking temperature rub the grill grates with oil.
  • Add the lamb chops to the grill, close the lid on the grill, and cook for 4 minutes.
  • Turn the lamb chops then close the lid and cook for an additional 4 minutes. Check the doneness with a temperature gauge. The lamb chops should be removed when the temperature is 5 degrees below your target temperature, as there will be carry-over cooking after being removed.
