  1. Whisk together the lemon zest and juice, oregano, garlic, salt, and black pepper in a bowl; pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add the lamb chops, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Set aside to marinate.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Bring the pomegranate juice and port wine to a simmer in a small saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, and continue simmering until the liquid has reduced to half of its original volume, about 45 minutes. Stir in the pomegranate seeds and set aside.
  4. Remove the lamb from the marinade, and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade. Cook the chops on the preheated grill until they start to firm, and are reddish-pink and juicy in the center, about 4 minutes per side for medium rare. Serve the chops drizzled with the pomegranate-port reduction.

I made this meal for my mom on mothers day. She loved it and so did the rest of my family. I used Dow's Fine Ruby Port. It's a sweet wine, which went really well with the lamb. Will make again.

Awesome, simple, and awesome! We made some changes... 1st, the reduction consistency was perfect when we took it down to about a 3rd and let it sit for a good 15-20 minutes. We also tossed in...

This is delicious! My guys loved it! I couldn't find fresh pomegranate so I skipped the seeds. I also used loin chops (my lamb chop loving Dad says they're better than regular chops.) He loved...

My wife said she did not like lamb until she tried this recipe great combination of flavors.

The sauce was a bit disappointing. I cooked it down to 1/4-1/3 quantity. It never thickened at all, and did not have a strong enough flavor for me. The recipe was good but that was more becau...

This was FANTASTIC! I had to use a pomegranate-blueberry juice as that was all I could find and there were no pomegranates available and it was my first time doing Lamb chops and they were to di...
