An incredibly zesty mint-garlic marinade packs loads of flavor into juicy lamb chops.


  • 4 lamb chops (loin, rib, sirloin, or shoulder)
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 shallots, minced
  • 2 cups fresh mint leaves
  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp red pepper sauce
  • 1 tsp salt


  • In the work bowl of a food processor, add garlic, shallots, mint leaves, olive oil, parsley, vinegar, red pepper sauce, and salt.
  • Pulse several times to mince and blend ingredients.
  • 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 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.
