    Default Marinated Lamb Chops

    I haven't tried cooking lamb before. I found some chops from the shoulder
    section that looked yummy and the price was right. Looking on the web on
    how to prepare them for the grill, I've chosen a marinade method.

    The marinade is made from onions and garlic, whirled in the mini FP to a
    medium fine chop. The last of the fresh parsley I had, some olive oil, wine
    vinegar, and some Merlot that I'm trying to work through. I don't drink red
    wine and only had a bottle unopened around for my dad when he visited.
    Well, he's gone, (I miss you daddy) so I'm trying to use the wine. I added
    some rosemary to the mix, plopped in the chops and in another hour I'll cook
    them on the grill. I guess from what I've read, they only need to be seared
    on both sides for a few minutes each side? It seems like you cook lamb like
    you cook beef. I definitely don't want to overcook the chops and turn them
    into shoe leather.

    Oh, lucky you!!! The marinade sounds positively scrumptious! Yes, cook
    as if for a steak and it's best to not cook the lamb chops any more than
    medium-rare, at most! But, rare is a bit too rare for lamb, even for me
    and I like my steaks to say "moo" <G>.

    Your marinade sounds like it will work just fine. And yes, I cook it like I
    cook beef, rare to medium-rare at the most.

    Thanks for the suggestion, both you and Jill agree about the medium rare
    cooking. Sounds good to me. My mouth is already watering! Going to cook
    up some broccoli to go with it.
