The Mediterranean-style spice and herb mix is the secret to this succulent lamb chop recipe. After being marinated and grilled, these loin lamb chops are tender, juicy, and flavorful.

What You'll Need

  • 3 clove garlic (minced)
  • 2 tablespoon ​olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 pinch cayenne
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 2 pounds lamb loin chops (about 8-10)
  • salt to taste

How to Make It

In a large baking dish, combine all the ingredients, except for the lamb chops and salt. Mix until combined, add the lamb chops and rub the marinade into both sides. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, turn over, and refrigerate for 2 hours more. Lamb chops may be marinated overnight.

Preheat grill, grill pan, or broiler. Remove chops from marinade and salt both sides generously. Cook about 5-6 minutes per side for medium-rare.

Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

This loin lamb chop recipe is great paired with a spicy orange mint sauce.
