  • 4 - 6 lamb (or mutton) chops
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh herbs (I used rosemary & mint)
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • Salt & pepper
  1. If the chops are quite fatty, use a sharp knife to cut most of the fat off, leaving about 5mm of fat on the chops.
  2. Mix together the marinade ingredients and spoon half of it evenly over the chops. Reserve the other half of the marinade for the other side of the chops once they are cooking. If you have time, you can do this a couple of hours before cooking but this is not neccesary.
  3. Heat the BBQ or a cast iron grill pan over a medium-high heat. Place the chops herb side down on the BBQ or in the frying pan and spoon the remaining marinade over them. Cook for 4-6 minutes and then flip over and cook for a further 4-6 minutes or until the meat is cooked to your liking.

  4. Remove from the heat and allow to rest for a few minutes before serving.
