A good dinner overall. The lamb chops look a little black in the picture but that is the balsamic vinegar glaze. It was pretty dark. I served it with corn and some fried up mushrooms and onion. I will definitely make this one again.


1 tablespoon olive oil
3 pounds Sweet potato; 3 large
8 Shallots; peeled and halved
1 tablespoon Rosemary; fresh or
1/2 teaspoon Rosemary; dried
1 teaspoon Salt; divided
1/4 teaspoon Pepper
2 cups Balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons Maple syrup
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 inch Orange peel
16 Lamb chops; 2 1/2 to 3 oz. each

Original recipe makes 8



Brush a large sheet of heavy-duty foil with oil. Arrange sweet potato slices, overlapping slighty, over center of foil. Sprinkle sweet potatoes with shallots, rosemary, 1/2 tsp salt and pepper. Fold over foil and seal and place package in or on barbecue. Cook for about 35 minutes, turning package once or twice. (Package can also be baked in a 400F/200C oven for about 35 minutes, or until tender.)

Meanwhile in a saucepan, combine vinegar, maple syrup, mustard, orange peel and remaining 1/2 tsp. salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered, for 10 to 15 minutes, or until mixture is syrupy. You should have about 1 cup glaze. Discard orange peel. Reserve 1/4 cup glaze for garnish.

Pour 1/2 cup glaze over chops and rub in. Grill Lamb for 2 minutes. Brush with 1/4 cup glaze, turn and cook for 2 minutes longer for medium rare.

Drizzle plates with reserved glaze. serve chops on a bed of sweet potatoes.

The glaze was too strong of vinegar. I'd like to try a higher quality balsamic next time. Made the chops taste great after grilling, but the sauce wasn't as good. Great recipe for sweet potatoes. Cooked mine right in a lasagna pan covered in foil.

I added s---aki mushrooms to the sauce and it was a great addition. The reduction went faster and the 'shrooms soaked up the flavor.

I used a lamb shoulder chop with this and the cut wasn't right. The balsamic and sweet potatos was great together
