Minted Lamb Chops with Roasted Tomatoes
Lamb chops are a quick-cooking, easy dinner. Serve with fresh mint for brightness and roasted tomatoes for acidity.
Test Kitchen Tip
To get a good sear on the chops, without them overcooking, use double-bone lamb chops rather than single-bone.
Preheat grill or grill pan to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil.
Whisk together butter and garlic.
Place tomatoes in center of a 12-inch piece of heavy-duty foil. Season tomatoes with salt and pepper, then seal foil to create a packet.
Grill chops and tomatoes, covered, flipping chops halfway through, until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part, but not touching bone, registers 130–135° for medium-rare, 10–12 minutes, and tomatoes are softened,10 minutes.
Transfer chops to a cutting board, top with garlic butter, tent with foil, and let rest 5 minutes. Divide tomatoes between two plates.
