  1. Mix tomato paste, red wine, olive oil, garlic, and basil in a small bowl to make the marinade.
  2. Place lamb chops in a glass or ceramic container; paint both sides thoroughly with the marinade. Cover bowl with plastic wrap; refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill to 475 degrees F (245 degrees C) and lightly oil the grate.
  4. Wipe most the marinade off the lamb, leaving a light coating. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. Grill lamb until firm and reddish-pink and juicy in the center, 4 to 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C).


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can use half of a butterflied boneless leg of lamb in place of the chops.
  • Adjust cooking time for rare, medium, or well-done servings or according to the thickness of the lamb.
