Spiced Lamb Chops

by Cindy Yanasha Angulo in ,

If you know me personally, you know I LOVE lamb!  Ground, stewed, curried, baked, grilled, burger'd... I love it all!  This is one of my fave ways to prepare lamb - it's fast and flavorful, perfect when you're in a hurry to make dinner!

Time: 20 mins


  • 1 pack lamb chops (I got mine from BJs, comes with 8 pieces per pack)
  • 2 teaspoons chilli powder
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil for cooking


  1. Coat both sides of the lamb chops with salt.
  2. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl to create the spice rub, then rub it on both sides of each chop.
  3. Grill on high heat for about 3-4 mins on each side, allowing the meat to char before turning over.
  4. Enjoy with a medium-bodied red wine (I used a Cabernet Sauvignon).

Serving suggestion:  I ate these with my creamy garlic mashed potatoes; devine!
