1/2 cup olive oil

3 cloves garlic, chopped

1 lemon, rind grated

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon dried herbes de Provence or 1/2 teaspoon dried basil plus 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper

8 lamb rib chops (1 pound total)


  1. Whisk oil, garlic, rind, juice, herbs, salt and pepper in small bowl.
  2. Place chops in shallow glass dish. Pour marinade over chops; turn to coat both sides of chops. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in refrigerator for at least 2 hours; turn chops over a few times.
  3. Heat broiler. Broil chops about 4 inches from heat for 3 minutes. Turn over; broil 3 or 4 minutes or until internal temperature registers 140 degrees on instant-read thermometer for medium-rare, or broil longer for desired doneness. Remove chops from broiler. Let rest 5 minutes before serving.
