Lamb is pretty popular in England, but I was never a fan of it. Later, I figured out that there was nothing wrong with lamb – I actually really enjoy lamb – but it had to be fresh lamb cooked well so that it was tender.
My mum recently started making these great grilled lamb chops – so tender, so flavorful! And so I just had to share this recipe with you. Plus they’re really easy. Even if you think you don’t like lamb, give these a taste when you next fire up the grill!
Grilled Cumin Crusted Lamb Chops Recipe
Start with your rack of lamb – we got these at Costco.
Slice it into individual lamb chops.
Make the cumin mixture with cumin, paprika, chili powder, and salt. Mix it together well – taste a bit to make sure it’s the right combination for your tastes (add more salt or chili powder as needed).
Dip each lamb chop into the cumin mixture and coat them well (don’t rinse the lamb chops afterwise they’ll be too wet).
Start up the grill and turn it to the lowest temperature.
Place the lamb chops on the grill.
Close the lid of the grill and cook for 5 minutes. Don’t let the temperature inside the grill get above 350F.
Flip the lamb chops every 2-3 minutes making sure they don’t get burnt. Use a meat thermometer to cook the lamb to the level of doneness you like.
