Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Resting Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Serving: 4 people


  • For the Lamb Chops:
    • 8 lamb chops
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 4 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
    • Salt and pepper to taste
  • For the Mint Sauce:
    • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
    • 1/4 cup boiling water


  1. Marinate the Lamb: In a bowl, combine olive oil, garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Coat the lamb chops with this mixture and marinate for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  2. Prepare the Mint Sauce: Dissolve sugar in boiling water, add vinegar, and then stir in the chopped mint. Set aside to cool.

  4. Rest and Serve: Let the lamb chops rest for 5 minutes after grilling. Serve with the mint sauce on the side.


  • Marinating the lamb for a longer period (up to overnight) will enhance the flavors.
  • Adjust the grilling time based on the thickness of the chops and personal preference for doneness.
