4 Servings
Preparation Time: 5 Min.
Marinate Time: 4 Hrs or overnight
Cook Time: 20 min.

Ingredients:

  • 4 American Lamb chops (loin, rib, sirloin or shoulder)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

Instructions:

In a small saucepan, combine honey, lemon juice, olive oil, thyme, mustard, salt and pepper flakes. Over medium heat, bring to a slight simmer; remove from heat immediately. Cool. Set aside 1/4 of the marinade for later use.
Pierce lamb chops with a fork several times on all sides. Place chops in a plastic food storage bag; coat with marinade. Marinate at least 4 hours or overnight. Remove chops, discarding remaining marinade.
Cook times will vary depending on thickness of chops. For 1-inch chops, broil or grill chops over medium heat for approximately 4 to 6 minutes per side or until desired doneness. Or, pan-fry chops then transfer to a baking sheet; finish cooking at 400°F until desired doneness. Brush with warmed reserved marinade before serving.
