Marinated Lamb Chops

These lean little lamb chops from Jill Heatwole of Pittsville, Maryland are packed with the flavors of rosemary, ginger and mustard. Marinating makes them so tender. They're something special for spring.

    I have never had lamb before so I decided to try this recipe. It was so easy and fast to cook. My grandkids really liked them and Papa ate 5 chops down to the bone so they must have been good. I did cook them well done and they were still nice and tender.
