hOTT off the grill: Teriyaki Lamb Chops

I have a fabulous recipe to share with you this week for Grilled Teriyaki Lamb Chops.  Every time I fix this, everyone asks for more.  But before I get to the recipe I wanted to share a little more information with you about lamb so you are an informed consumer.  Although, it's called lamb, the sheep are fully grown when they are sent to market.  Depending on the type of breed, sheep reach market weight around 120-150 pounds.  To the left is a picture of lamb chops.  As you can see from the ruler they are smaller, about 4-5 inches big.  Usually my husband and I can eat 3 or 4 chops each; so that should help you gauge how many to prepare.

Now, on with the recipe for a new entree' you'll be sure to enjoy!

Firstly, I mix up my marinade (see recipe card with all ingredients and directions. You can also click on the card and print it off to have as a handy reference for when you fix this.) the morning of the day I'm going to fix lamb chops so they can sit in it all day while I'm at work. I use Reynolds' Oven Bags for this as they are sturdy, large and easy to throw away.

When I get home in the evening they are ready to go and I can just throw the lamb chops on the grill and discard of the marinade.  Grill until the lamb reaches your desired level of doneness.
 I usually serve with rice and a vegetable.  Now doesn't that look delish!  Quick, easy, tasty and a new type of entree' you can add to dinner meal selection.   Try lamb tonight!!!

Sad, I know, but even though we have sheep I've never cooked lamb. What a loser, huh? You just might inspire me yet, Ott, A! :)

I'll be over because grilling is such fun with friends and this looks really good! Thanks for a new marinade. I'm sure it would be delicious with any meat.

PS On feeding Goldfinches, I saw a neat feeder the other day (at Fred Meyers Store). They had a special thistle seed feeder just for Goldfinches. Apparently the birds have to feed upside down and Goldfinches are the only ones who can do it. So look around. In the picture on my blog those birds are small like Finches, but they are a Lazula Bunting who like a mixed wild seed. Finches prefer thistle seed and you can buy a Finch sack or special feeder that holds it cause it's extra fine. I'll post my Finch feeder soon!

I've only had lamb once in my life (liked it as far as I remember), and this recipe looks delicious. I'm going to have to stop by the butcher shop on my way home I think. :)

Thanks for stopping by last week for my SITS day... slowly but surely I'm making it to all of my new favorite bloggers!
