8 (4-oz) lamb rib chops
(or 4 (8-oz) loin chops)
1/3 cup olive oil
2 whole lemons, thinly sliced, ends removed
2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
2 Tbsp chopped fresh marjoram leaves
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
1 (16-oz) package orzo (rice-shaped pasta)
1 large tomato, chopped
1 cucumber, seeded and chopped
Preparation: Serves 4
Combine all ingredients except orzo, tomato and cucumber in a large, zip-top plastic bag. Seal and chill 2 to 3 hours, turning bag occasionally.
Preheat grill to medium-high.
Remove lamb from marinade and discard marinade. Grill lamb chops 2 to 5 minutes per side, depending on desired doneness. (For loin chops, grill 5 to 8 minutes per side.)
Meanwhile, prepare the orzo according to the package instructions. Add the tomato and cucumber, stir, and season with salt. Serve chops over orzo mixture.
