The key to these juicy lamb chops is in the simple marinade. Marinating the lamb loin chops for a few hours or even overnight is the secret to making them so delicious!! Then grill them for a few minutes on both sides. I used a cast iron grill pan to make these, but an outdoor grill works just the same. You can also cooks these lamb chops in the broiler of your oven.
Some of our friends think Italian cooking is difficult or too complex, and they won't even attempt to make an Italian dish. Well that's not true. Italian cooking is actually very easy! Through the years we watched our mother use only the simplest ingredients, the ones that we all have in our pantry. No need to fuss with a lot of ingredients, and that is what makes Italian cooking so easy!
To compliment the lamb, serve it with any of our side dishes like Easy Garlic Mashed Potatoes,
or Roasted Baby Red and Yukon Potatoes with Herbs. Enjoy!
