Students at Harvard also discover that just a few ingredients, such as garlic and chopped fresh rosemary, lend a heady fragrant aroma to a humble lamb chop. An instant-read thermometer is crucial for determining when to remove the lamb from the grill (from 140° for rare to 170° for well done), since doneness is a matter of personal preference.

1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1 garlic clove, minced
4 (4-ounce) lamb loin chops, trimmed
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Cooking spray


Combine rosemary, oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and garlic; rub mixture evenly over both sides of lamb. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Prepare grill.

Sprinkle both sides of lamb with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Place lamb on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 3 minutes on each side (145° for medium-rare) or until desired degree of doneness.
