Indian and Herb Spiced Grilled Lamb Chops


Lamb is one of my favorite meats.  Personally I like it more than beef, if given the choice between lamb and steak, I’d choose the lamb every time.  My husband on the other hand prefers steak.  He is 100% a meat and potato’s kind of guy.  After having these lamb chops he said that he’s a convert..Lol..I doubt it!   However, I’m glad that he thought that these lamb chops were delicious. I came up with the idea of marinating these with the fillings that I use for my Lamb Patties.  I added a little bit of curry powder and cumin to give the chops a little punch of flavor.  I’m so glad I did these are super flavorful, and grilling them made them more amazing than they already were.  If you only try one of my lamb recipes try this one! You will not be disappointed!!!

Lamb chops with a spicy mustard sauce

Lamb is always a quick go to meal in our house. We love to grill lamb chops, or broil lion chops in the oven. Since I cook lamb chops so often, I have conjured up several types of sauces to go on the lamb chops to mix things up a bit. I’ll share many of them with you at some point, however, this spicy mustard sauce is one of my favorites. All in all this lamb chop dish takes 15 minutes, and that includes the time it takes to make the sauce! I use my tabletop convection oven to broil these loin chops. You can use your oven. If you use foil to line your sheet pan like I did, then clean up is just a trash toss away! Doesn’t get more lazy than that!:-)

Here’s what you need:
4-5 lamb loin chops
Sea salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Quick spray of olive oil so the loin chops don’t stick

Spicy mustard sauce
2 tablespoons of a Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp of fresh horseradish (optional if you like it really spicy use this, or use this if your Dijon is not spicy enough)
1 clove of garlic finely minced
3 teaspoons of white wine vinegar
3 tablespoon of olive oil
Sea salt to taste

In a small bowl add all of the ingredients for the mustard sauce and mix until combined, then set aside.  Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees. Season both sides of loin chops generously with sea salt and pepper. Line a baking sheet with foil, spray lightly with olive oil spray. Place lamb chops on the sheet:

 Bake for 10-15 minutes :

Serve with a nice dollop of the spicy mustard sauce and enjoy! What is your favorite spicy sauce?
