Grilled Lamb Chops with Tomato-Onion Sauce

"This sauce is a nice combination of sweet and savory flavors. It is very versatile, complements any grilled meat, and even tastes good over plain white rice. Have the onions, garlic, and tomatoes chopped and close by because the cooking happens quickly, and you shouldn't take your eyes off the pan." CL Reader
