Easy Grilled Lamb Chops with Pesto

I say these Grilled lamb Chops are easy to make because Lamb Chop recipes are simple and incredibly delicious, to boot.  I’m telling you, if you’re a steak fan, a rack of lamb, prepared properly, will blow your mind.  I, for one, now understand why there are so many historical stories about sacrificial lambs.  Okay, I might not get the whole religion part but I get that giving up and slaughtering your own lamb truly is a sacrifice, if you’re not gettin’ any!  I mean, COME ON!  Lamb Chops are sooo tasty.

The Secret to Grilled Lamb Chops

When you’re preparing Grilled Lamb Chops, all you need to do is clean them up a bit.  That means, trim the fat and remove the Silver Skin from the meat.  This will keep them lean and less chewy to eat.  If you want to get super fancy, you can French the bones as well but unless you’re serving the president, or someone that thinks they’re royalty, it really isn’t necessary.  Plus, sucking the fat off the bones is one of the best things about eating Lamb Chops, so don’t deprive yourself of that.  Go a head and let heart disease settle on in and enjoy yourself, for crying out loud.

Now, after you’ve cleaned the rack, you can Salt and Pepper and grill as is or cut it into Lamb Chop portions before you grill.  Either way it will turn out the same, so it’s entirely up to you.  You’re going to need a good Pesto and you can either buy it premade or you can try my recipe.  I’ve listed the ingredients down below with a separate video tutorial but if you want to see the original post for that, CLICK HERE.

These Grilled Lamb Chops are great with the Pesto alone but if you’d like to have something to dip them in, you might want to look into my Tzatziki Sauce Recipe.  It has a nice Greek Yogurt base that you’re going to love.

Amazing Lamb Chops

These Lamb Chops I cooked and prepared from scratch completely blew my mind.  It was as good as any Prime Rib I’ve ever had, and that’s saying something.  The real crazy thing is, it only took me 15 minutes from start to finish and I was eating the most succulent tender Lamb Chops you could ever wish for.  And the flavor… Ah… UNBELIEVABLE!  I’m telling you this because normally I’m not a fan of lamb.  But these Lamb Chops are unreal.  I would recommend this recipe to any fan or non believer out there because these meaty bites of heaven are a slam dunk in any kitchen.

Update:  Since this recipe was published I put together another video tutorial for a Rack of Lamb.  This first recipe was so amazing I started exploring other ways to prepare Lamb Chops and this is what I came up with.  A “Garlic Crusted Rack of Lamb!”  It takes the same amount of time to cook and prepare and it’s equally amazing yet very distinctive from this Lamb Chops Recipe.  I highly recommend it!

I also have a Rack of Lamb recipe with a Mint Panko Crust you might want to consider, along with several spare rib recipes if you’re interested.  Just search for “Ribs” in the search bar on this page.

Lamb Chops Ingredients:

1 Rack of Lamb, 8 bones
4 oz Water
2 tbsp Butter
Salt & Pepper to taste

Sear the Rack of Lamb over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes on all sides and bake at 400 degrees f for 10 minutes.  Then Cut into Lamb Chops and serve with Aju.
