Ingredients

  • 1.5 pounds lamb loin chops about 8-10 chops
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Combine the rosemary, garlic, red wine vinegar, and olive oil in a food processor chopper. Pulse until it is well chopped and combined.
  • If your lamb chops have some silver skin on them, use a thin knife to cut it off.
  • Marinate the lamb chops in this mixture for at least 30 minutes, or up to about 2 hours.
  • Preheat your smoker according to the manufacturer's directions.
  • Sprinkle the marinated chops with salt and pepper before smoking.
  • Smoke these Traeger smoked lamb chops at 225-F for about 40 minutes or until they reach 135-F for medium-rare chops.
  • Preheat the Blackstone griddle or a cast iron pan until smoking hot and sear the chops for 1-2 minutes per side just to put some color on them. Reverse seared lamb chops are just prettier!
  • Let rest for 5 minutes and dig in!
