Expert Tips

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.
