Grilled Lamb Chops with Dijon-Basil Butter

Total time: 20 minutes


  • 4 - 6 center-cut lamb chops - depending on size
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbs chopped fresh basil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp Dijon-style mustard
  • 2 tbs soft butter


  • Sprinkle chops with garlic powder, drizzle with oil and allow to sit until ready to cook.
  • Cook on barbecue grill over medium-high - high heat for 2 - 5 minutes per side.
  • When you think they might be close take one off, cut into center and peak.  You can always put them back on to cook more - you cannot undo...
  • When done to your liking remove from heat, divide basil butter to top each chop and serve.
  • Dijon-Basil Butter:
  • Put garlic and basil into a small bowl, add mustard and butter and mix well.  Can be made ahead, shaped into a log, chilled and sliced before putting on chops.
