Here's One For the Grills - Minted Lamb Chops

So, you're ready for the weekend! Fire up those grills or use a stove top grill like I did. Our family has always enjoyed a good lamb chop. I know, there are many people out there who detest it! Sometimes the secret to a good piece of meat is in the marinade. Try this and if you don't care for lamb it works well on chicken!

Minted Lamb Chops

4 lamb loin chops (the small ones)
1/4 c olive oil
3 cloves garlic, chopped
3 T chopped mint
1 T balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

Place the chops into a plastic bag or container. Mix the remaining ingredients. Add to bag except for 1T of mixture (for the garnish). I like to marinade for as long as 4 hours but 1 hour will flavor the chops nicely. Put in refigerator.

Using a stove top grill, heat on med-high. Place the chops on the grill and rotate on all sides to sear the meat. Reduce the heat to med-low, cover and continue to cook until done to your likeness. At the last minute drizzle the remaining marinade. Serves 2.
