  • 4 lamb chops

  • 2 lemons, juiced

  • ¼ cup dry white wine

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • cup chopped fresh parsley

  • cup chopped fresh mint

  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

  • 3 tablespoons chili powder

  • 1 tablespoon ground dried chipotle pepper

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 5 dashes Worcestershire sauce

  • 3 dashes liquid smoke flavoring

  • 1 pinch salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Rinse lamb chops and pat dry. Set aside.

  2. Whisk lemon juice, white wine, brown sugar, parsley, mint, vinegar, chili powder, chipotle powder, garlic, Worcestershire, liquid smoke, salt, and black pepper together in a large mixing bowl to emulsify. Add lamb chops. Marinate in the refrigerator, 8 hours to overnight.

  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  4. Cook lamb chops on the preheated grill until browned and only slightly pink in the centers, brushing with marinade frequently, about 6 minutes per side. Stand chops upright for the final turn, which heats the bone and cooks the meat internally. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). Rest lamb chops for about 3 minutes before serving.
