Mediterranean Grilled Lamb Chops

Mediterranean

The marinade here has enough flavor that even a short time of marinating will suffice, which is why this is my go-to lamb recipe for mid-week meals. If you have pomegranate molasses (which I teach you to make here), a little drizzle over the chops makes them truly extraordinary.
Ingredients
Marinade:
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup dry red wine
1 tablespoon sugar
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary, or 1 teaspoon dried
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt

8 1-inch thick lamb loin chops
2 tablespoons Pomegranate Molasses (optional)
Additional rosemary sprigs for garnish (optional) +
Steps
1 In a large bowl, combine marinade ingredients. Toss lamb chops with marinade and allow to marinate at least 1 hour or up to overnight.

2 Prepare hot grill.

3 Remove chops from marinade, allowing excess to drip off, as the olive oil can cause flare-ups.

4 Grill for 5 minutes on the first side, then turn and grill for 2-4 minutes more for medium-rare.

5 Remove to platter. Drizzle with pomegranate molasses, if using, and garnish with rosemary sprigs.
