Rocky Mountain Grill

Total Time

Prep: 5 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min.


4 servings

These flavorful lamb chops simply marinate overnight, then grill up in only 10 minutes or so. The Dijon mustard and cayenne pepper add a delicious zip to this entree, which was shared by the American Lamb Council.


  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons rubbed sage
  • 1 teaspoon grated onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 lamb loin chops (1 pound)


  1. In a shallow dish, combine the first eight ingredients. Remove 3 tablespoons for basting; refrigerate. Add lamb chops to the remaining marinade and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. Grill chops, covered, over medium-hot heat for 4 minutes. Turn; baste with reserved marinade. Grill for 4 minutes. Turn and grill 1 minute longer or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°).
