Grilled Lamb Chops with Thyme

Sometimes simple is best. These grilled lamb chops are a standout on their own, seasoned with just fresh thyme and a bit of crushed red pepper.

  • 8 lamb loin or rib chops, cut 1 inch thick (about 2 1/2 pounds total)

  • 2 teaspoons snipped fresh thyme

  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper


  1. Trim fat from chops. Sprinkle both sides of chops evenly with thyme and crushed red pepper, rubbing in with your fingers.

  2. For a gas or charcoal grill, place chops on the greased rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat. Grill, covered, to desired doneness, turning once halfway through grilling. Allow 12 to 14 minutes for medium rare (145 degrees F) or 15 to 17 minutes for medium (160 degrees F). Place two lamb chops on each of four serving plates.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
