Grilled Lamb Chops With Flavored Butter
8 lamb loin chops, 1 1/4 inch thick (2 per person)
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1-2 anchovy fillets (optional)
1 clove garlic, peeled, whole
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon Worcestershire or A-1 sauce
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, softened
salt to taste
Preheat grill to medium heat.
Combine ingredients for the garlic-rosemary oil blend in a small bowl and brush generously over both sides of the chops. Set aside.
In a food processor, add optional anchovy, garlic and mustard and process to a paste. Add remaining ingredients except salt and process to smooth. Add salt, to taste.
Grill chops to desired doneness, but they are best cooked to medium-rare when the internal temperature reaches 130-135°F.
Place chops on platter and spoon one generous teaspoon of flavored butter over each and serve. Extra butter may be rolled in plastic wrap and frozen. Cut off slices as needed.
