Grilled lamb loin chops seasoned with Za'atar, a Mediterranean blend of sumac, thyme, sesame and salt.

Ingredients

  • 8 lamb loin chops (trimmed (about 3.5 oz each bone-in))
  • 3 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 fresh lemon
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp Za’atar

Instructions

Grill or Broil Method:

  • Rub the lamb chops with oil and garlic.
  • Squeeze the lemon over both sides, than season with salt, zatar and black pepper.
  • Grill on an outdoor grill or indoor grill pan over medium-high heat to desired liking, about 4 to 5 minutes on each side or broil in the oven on the top rack, 4 to 5 minutes on each side.

Air Fryer Method:

  • Rub the lamb chops with oil and garlic.
  • Squeeze the lemon over both sides, than season with salt, zatar and black pepper.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 400F. In batches in an even layer, cook to desired liking, about 4 to 5 minutes on each side.
