“I was wondering what to do for dinner without going to the store when I came across this recipe from eprcurious. I was a little doubtful of a lettuce mint salad but it worked well with these chops. Times do not include rest time.”

Directions

  1. Grate 2 teaspoons zest from 1 lemon. Trim ends of both lemons, then stand lemons on a cut side and cut peel, including white pith, from lemons with a sharp paring knife (discard peel). Cut segments free from membranes, then cut segments crosswise into 1/4-inch pieces. Toss lemon segments gently with sugar in a bowl and stir in 2 tablespoons oil. Let stand at room temperature 10 minutes for flavors to develop.
  2. Mince and mash garlic to a paste with 1/2 teaspoon salt, then stir together with baharat, grated zest, remaining tablespoon oil, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Rub all over lamb chops. Cover and let rest about 15 minutes.
  3. Toss lettuce and mint with lemon mixture.
  4. Prepare grill for direct-heat cooking over medium-hot charcoal (medium-high heat for gas); see Grilling Procedure .
  5. Grill chops, turning once, about 6 minutes total for medium-rare. Transfer to a plate and let rest, loosely covered, 5 minutes. Serve chops with salad.
  6. Tips:
  7. You can make your own baharat by grinding 1 teaspoon each of whole cloves, cumin seeds, Maras or Aleppo pepper, and a 3-inch cinnamon stick (broken in half) in an electric coffee/spice grinder until finely ground.
  8. Chops can be cooked in an oiled hot 2-burner grill pan over medium-high heat, turning once, about 6 minutes.
  9. Lemon mixture keeps at room temperature 2 hours. Toss with lettuce and mint just before serving.
