Grilled Lamb Chops with Cherry Port Sauce

Grilled Lamb Chops with Cherry Port Sauce Recipe
Oxmoor House
We used port, a sweet fortified wine, to create a vibrant sauce for the lamb. The unique flavor of port is hard to match, but if you need a substitute, use a fruity red wine or 2/3 cup pomegranate-cherry juice and 1/2 teaspoon sugar.

Yield:

4 servings (serving size: 2 chops and about 2 1/2 tablespoons sauce)
