So quick & easy ---- great tasting off the grill:

Use store-bought pre-cut fresh lamb rib chops (hopefully approx. 3/4" thick or more), or buy a rack of lamb & cut them up yourself.

Make a marinade by mixing together:

- 1/2 cup or more of olive oil
- 1/4 cup of soy sauce
- 1 tspn. hot mustard (or Dijon)
- 1 Tbspn. finely diced shallots
- 1 tspn. finely diced garlic
- 1/2 tspn. each of thyme, oregano, rosemary, and savory
- salt & pepper

Marinate the ribs in a zip-lock bag for 2 to 8 hours or more (longer the better), turning occasionally.

Remove from marinade and scrape off excess bits/pieces of shallot, garlic and spices.

BBQ grill on high heat for approx. 1.5- 2 minutes each side - ribs should turn out @ medium-rare - serve immediately.

To clarify, for those of you not familiar with lamb, the rib chops are obtained from (cut from) the lamb rack, namely the ribs of the animal.

Lamb rack is the most expensive meat portion from lamb, and happens to be the most tender of lamb cuts ( and the tastiest imo).
Directly behind the lamb rack are the lamb loin chops (the T-bones), well known to lamb lovers lovers - the most often available - but they are less tender than the rib chops.
