Grilled Lamb Shoulder Chops with Herb Aioli

Source: Martha Stewart Living, July 2008

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 garlic clove, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons coarsely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 lamb shoulder chops (each about 10 ounces and 1 inch thick)
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges, for serving

Directions

  1. Using an immersion blender or a food processor, combine egg, garlic, and herbs. With the machine running, pour in oils in a slow, steady stream, blending until thickened. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a dish, press plastic wrap on surface, and refrigerate while lamb is cooking.

  2. Preheat grill to medium-high. Season lamb with salt and pepper, and grill to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Serve with aioli and lemon wedges.

Cook's Note

Shoulder chops, an inexpensive cut that's rich in flavor, are available at most major supermarkets.
