Rosemary grilled lamb chops are so tasty, and really good for you. That is, if the lamb chops are grass-fed. I'm not fond of grain-fed lamb, and it's not very healthy either. Grass-fed meat is rich in omega 3 fatty acids, CLA. It's also much higher in fat soluble activators A, D, and K2.
Rosemary is a hardy perennial you can grow in most any garden or on a patio with some sun. The combination of garlic, butter and rosemary with the lamb is really perfect.
This is a delicious main course that you can serve with a big green salad, and grilled or mashed potatoes or other side dish.Print
Rosemary Grilled Lamb Chops
- Garlic cloves (4-6)
- Rosemary, fresh (1 small bunch)
- Thyme, fresh (1 small bunch)
- Cayenne pepper (pinch)
- Butter, grass-fed or olive oil, good quality (4 TBS)
- Lamb chops, grass-fed, 3/4-inch thick (8-12)
- Coconut oil, melted, or olive oil, good quality (enough to oil the grill grates)
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1. Peel garlic and place into food processor fitted with the metal blade.
2. Rinse and dry both the fresh rosemary and thyme. Remove about 1 tablespoon of the needles and add to the bowl of the processor. Add in about 1 teaspoon of the thyme leaves as well. You can also use dried herbs, but use fresh herbs if you can.
3. Add to the bowl a pinch of the cayenne pepper.
4. Pulse until combined in the food processor. (If you don't have a food processor, you can use a whisk, but you will need to finely mince the herbs and the garlic.)
5. Add in the butter or olive oil and pulse until the mixture becomes a paste.
6. Rub the paste onto both sides of each lamb chop and allow to marinate for at least one hour in the refrigerator, or overnight.
7. About 20-30 minutes before grilling time, remove the chops from the refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature. You never want to cook grass-fed meat that's any colder than room temperature.
8. Grease the grates with coconut oil. If using a charcoal grill, put the coals on one side and put the meat off to the side of the coals — not directly over the hot coals. If using a gas, grill, heat the grill to medium-low heat on one side and either put the chops up high or off to the side slightly — not directly over the flame.
9. Cover and cook on low to medium heat on both sides until done.
10. Check the temperature with the instant read thermometer — it should read 120-145 degrees F.
11. Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and serve.

Support Me & My Work
I have been blogging about real food, alternative health, and about the dangers of vaccines and Big Pharma since 2007. As a result, the cabal has punished me severely financially via the IRS, FTC, hacks, etc. I lost my blog network in 2014 which I now believe was an orchestrated attack. Last summer, I lost 80% of my income from my blog due to the Google algorithm change that impacted almost all health bloggers including Dr. Mercola.I'm now working to build my blog and YouTube channel and I appreciate all the support from my fans. Once I can start making more money, I will be able to hire some help and childcare, so I can create more content. Thank you for any help you can offer. Here are some ways you can support me as a content creator and journalist:
- Support me on Patreon (I'm still setting up the bonuses from the tiers but you can start donating now).
- Buy my shampoo or skincare. Want more info? Read my review of MONAT. Or click here to learn how to order MONAT and save the most money. Got questions? Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or if you need help placing an order.
- Send me a donation via Paypal: email@example.com
- Enroll in my online course: Online Marketing Simplified. Updates to the course are temporarily on hold so I can cover Q -- but I will be back to adding course lessons as soon as the storm is over and we are out of quarantine -- any week now!
- If you can't help financially, it's OK! You can help by sharing my content. Share my blog posts, YouTube videos, and Facebook & Instagram posts, and leave me comments. Sharing helps get my work seen -- and liking and commenting helps boost the content in the search engine algorithms.
