Just three ingredients plus salt and pepper turn lamb chops into an elegant and easy dinner.
lamb rib chops or lamb loin chops, about 1 inch thick (about 2 lb)
tablespoons dry white wine or apple juice
teaspoon chopped fresh or 1/4 teaspoon dried mint leaves
Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Remove excess fat from lamb. In small bowl, mix remaining ingredients.
Place lamb on grill over medium heat; brush with wine mixture. Cover and grill 9 to 11 minutes for medium doneness, turning once and brushing with wine mixture. Discard any remaining wine mixture.
One teaspoon chopped fresh or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves can be substituted for the mint.
Brush 1/2-inch-thick slices of a small onion with vegetable oil and grill for 5 to 10 minutes. Place a couple of the onion rings on the bone of each chop. Thread fresh mint sprigs through the onion rings. Place on a platter for serving.
