Grilled Lamb Chops

This is one of our favorite things to eat,
grilled lamb chops!
 I like to marinade them for the day. 
I shake up the marinade ingredients in a jar
and pour it over the chops in a ziplock bag.
 I smoosh it around to make sure they are well 
coated. Remove them from the fridge
 15 minutes before grilling. 
 Allow 2 chops per person. 
We had an extra one to share tonight.
 We like our lamb medium-rare, so it only takes 
 about 10 minutes on a preheated grill, depending
 on the thickness. Adjust for your taste.
 This is such a fast dinner. All I need to add is a 
vegetable and potato…and of course red wine!
 I have 2 favorite marinades. One is the same one
 I use for grilled leg of lamb. I’ve posted that one
 below. The other one has a hint of curry powder,
 though you can’t pick that out in the flavor. 
Then there’s always my go-to seasoning
prep for grilling meat.  All good! 

Marinated Lamb Chops

8 Lamb Chops
1 t curry powder
1 t salt
2 T minced onion or 1T dried
1 large clove garlic, minced about 2-3T
1/4 C lemon juice
1/4 C red wine
1/4 C olive oil
Mix together all marinade ingredients and add
to the lamb chops in a in sealable bag, turning
 to coat. Marinade in refrigerator for 2 hours.
 Bring to room temperature for 15 minutes
before grilling. Grill for 4-5 minutes per side. 
(can also use a hot cast iron skillet on stovetop)
 I like them slightly charred and medium-rare 
on the inside. Let rest 5 minutes.
