Make this two-ingredient marinade even easier by using pre-minced garlic sold in jars. Lamb chops are so flavorful on their own that they don't require much seasoning. Rosemary and garlic make the perfect rub for lamb chops. The rub can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator. You can find cut lamb chops in the grocery store or you can buy lamb rib roasts and ask the butcher to cut them into lamb chops. Serve the lamb chops with grilled asparagus. It's typically recommended to cook lamb chops to medium rare, but you can cook them to the desired degree of doneness.
