2 ts Garlic; minced
1/4 c Basil; julienned
2 tb Balsamic vinegar
1/8 ts Black pepper; freshly ground
1/2 ts Kosher salt
1/2 c Olive oil; extra-virgin
3 tb Dijon mustard
12 1 1/2" thick Rib lamb chops

Original recipe makes 4



1. In a nonreactive bowl, combine the Dijon mustard, garlic, vinegar, salt, and pepper with 2 tsp water. Slowly whisk in the olive oil to form a creamy marinade. Stir in the cut basil. 2. Add the chops to the marinade and toss to coat evenly. Marinate the chops for 1 to 3 hours, covered and refrigerated. 3. Preheat a grill, grill pan, or barbecue to very hot. Shake the excess marinade from the chops and grill 4 to 5 mins a side for medium-rare, or slightly longer for more well done. Transfer to a warm platter and serve. NOTE: This a "finger food", meant to be eaten hot-off-the-grill.

I just broiled these in the oven for about 7 minutes per side. Tasty and juicy.

Very tasty. Seems like the marinade might be too strong as you're making it, but when all is said and done it's nicely balanced. I've made this 3 times now and consider it to be in my standard repertoire.
