Rosemary and Garlic Lamb Chops

Lamb is one of Australia’s favourite meats. Roast Lamb in particular has been found to be more popular in parts of Australia than Meat Pies and the trusty Sausage Sandwich.

There are multiple ways of cooking Lamb of course, and chops are one easy and quick meal.

As with any meat, a higher quality, pasture-raised animal will taste better, though it will be inevitably more expensive.

Marinating the lamb for a few hours before cooking will help to enhance the herb flavours, but if you are in a rush it will still be delicious with minimal preparation.

One trick to enhance flavour that has become increasingly popular recently is to spread mayonnaise on the meat before grilling. If you are interested in trying this you could add a layer of mayo to the chops after they have been marinated, and before you place them in the pan or on the grill.
