30 Minute Lamb Grill for Two by Ben Bartlett

From BBQ Owners’ Grilling Manual: A Guide to Cooking with Grills, Chimeneas, Brick Ovens and Spits (Haynes Owners Workshop Manuals)

Serves 2

Transform traditional lamb chops with this simple marinade.


4 lamb loin chops (225g or 8oz)

1 tbsp light soy sauce

2 tsp sesame oil

1 chopped onion

1 garlic clove minced

2 tsp chopped ginger

2 tsp honey (Nigel’s addition)

Pinch of salt and pepper


In a shallow dish, whisk together the soy sauce, oil, onion, garlic, ginger, honey and pepper.

Add the lamb, turn to coat, and let the meat stand in the mixture for 10 minutes.

Place the lamb on a greased grill over a medium-high heat.

Cook for 5 to 7 minutes on each side for medium-rare or longer if desired. 

Salt to taste.

Ben’s Top Tip

Use unsweetened apple juice applied with a misting spray. Use a plastic hand sprayer available from barbecue shops, garden centres and the internet. This gives all meat a bit more caramelisation.

Nigel’s Top Tip

The lamb can as easily be cooked in a griddle or frying pan if your barbecue isn’t to hand.  Temperature & cooking times remain the same. Also use the marinade on sliced courgettes & par boiled corn & the cob.
