If you’re new to lamb, I recommend trying grilled lamb chops cut from a rib roast. The meat is tender and flavorful like ribeye with a bright, sweet finish.

To really bring out their flavor, create a flash marinade with olive oil, shallots, garlic and fresh herbs. Throw in a splash of lemon and vinegar to help balance out the fattiness of the meat. And a pop of sugar to bring it all together.

Grilled lamb chops are great for lunch or dinner, but you can also create a special brunch by serving these up with single skillet fried eggs.
