Grilled Lamb Chops with Garam Masala


Source: Martha Stewart's Dinner at Home


  • 2 teaspoons garam masala
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 4 lamb shoulder chops (each 6 to 7 ounces and 3/4 inches thick)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Cilantro sprigs, for garnish


  1. Heat grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. In a bowl, combine garam masala, salt, and pepper. Place lamb chops on a baking sheet or platter, and drizzle with oil; rub chops to coat evenly all over. Sprinkle tops of chops with half the spice mixture, and gently rub onto meat. Turn chops over; repeat with remaining spice mixture.

  2. Grill chops until they reach desired doneness, about 3 minutes per side for medium-rare. Serve immediately, garnished with cilantro.

    This was absolutely lovely! My boyfriend loves lamb and he flipped for it. We served it with Saffron couscous and grilled zuchinni. The 3 minutes on each side was just right. Another hit for Martha! Thanks for making me look so good!
