Preparation time: 1.25 hours
Cooking time: 6 - 8 minutes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 lemon, zested (about 1/2 teaspoon)
1 lemon, juiced (about 2 tablespoons)
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh oregano leaves (dried would work as well)
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
8 (4-ounce) lamb loin chops, trimmed of all visible fat
In a small bowl stir together the first 7 ingredients. Place in a ziplock baggie.
Add the meat. Move the chops around in the bag so the marinade coats them well. Marinate for 1 hour.
Grill or broil the chops for 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium rare.
**Definitely serve this with cibatta bread**
