Create a hearty meal for your family and friends by cooking a few lamb chops. Season your lamb chops with aromatic ingredients such as minced garlic, rosemary leaves, dried chili peppers and freshly peeled ginger root. Use a simple recipe to avoid unnecessary prep time. Make sure to cook the lamb chops thoroughly to destroy any bacteria housed within the meat. Use a grill and an oven to quickly cook the lamb chops.

Rub down the lamb chops with some extra-virgin olive oil, minced garlic and a dash of finely chopped rosemary. Sprinkle the chops with salt and ground black pepper. Cut a lemon in half using a kitchen knife.

Squeeze half the lemon over the lamb chops. Ignite your charcoal or turn your gas grill to a medium high heat. Place your marinated lamb chops on the grill.

Allow the lamb chops to cook for 4 minutes. Flip the lamb chops with a pair of tongs to avoid puncturing the meat. Allow the chops to cook for another four minutes.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the seared lamb chops onto a non-stick baking sheet. Allow the lamb chops to finish cooking in the oven for five minutes.
