Herbed Garlic Lamb Chops Recipe


  • 8 lamb loin chops or lamb forequarter chops
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Lemon wedges, for serving
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish


  1. Marinate the Lamb Chops:

    • In a small bowl, combine minced garlic, rosemary, thyme, oregano, paprika, cumin, sea salt, and black pepper.
    • Add olive oil and lemon juice to the herb mixture and mix well to form a marinade.
    • Place the lamb chops in a large zip lock bag or a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the lamb chops, ensuring they are well coated. Seal the bag or cover the dish and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or up to 24 hours for maximum flavour.
  2. Prepare the Grill or Pan:

    • If using a grill, preheat it to medium-high heat.
    • If using a stovetop, heat a large skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat.
  3. Cook the Lamb Chops:

    • Remove the lamb chops from the marinade, letting any excess drip off.
    • Grill or pan-sear the lamb chops for about 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare, or until they reach your desired level of doneness. Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature, aiming for 145°F (63°C) for medium-rare.
  4. Rest and Serve:

    • Transfer the cooked lamb chops to a plate and let them rest for 5 minutes to allow the juices to redistribute.
    • Garnish with fresh parsley and serve with lemon wedges on the side.

Serving Suggestions:

  • Serve the lamb chops with a side of roasted vegetables, such as carrots, potatoes, and Brussels sprouts.
  • Pair with a fresh salad, such as a Greek salad or a simple green salad with a vinaigrette dressing.
  • Complement the meal with a grain like couscous, quinoa, or rice pilaf.

Enjoy your delicious and flavourful herbed garlic lamb chops!
