- 6 to 8loin lamb chops
- 4cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper to taste
Preheat a grill or cast-iron grill pan over high heat. If using a charcoal grill, build the fire so that one side of the grill has more coals than the other — a “hot” side. If using a grill pan, preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Rub the lamb chops with the garlic and season aggressively with salt and pepper. If grilling, place on the hot side for 2 minutes per side. Move the chops to the cooler side of the grill to cook through, an additional 6 to 7 minutes. If using a grill pan, grill one side for 2 minutes to sear, then turn over the chops and place the pan in the oven for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from the grill or oven and allow to sit 5 minutes before serving.
