"This is the best recipe for Grilled Lamb Loin Chop. I did make some changes to the recipe though. Instead of fresh onions, I used dehydrated onions for the wine sauce. Be sure to use a good drinking red wine for the sauce, I used Firestone's Cab and it was a good choice. I did not have cherry tomatoes so I passed on the grilled tomato and garlic. The dish came out superb and with a side of garlic mashed potatoes, amazing."
