valentine's day dinner-Rosemary-Dijon Lamb Chops

Rosemary-Dijon Lamb Chops

The combination of Dijon mustard, citrus, and rosemary produces the most fantastic flavor on lamb chops. Cook on a hot grill until it reaches desired doneness. I recommend an internal temperature between 135-140 degrees F. Serve with your favorite grilled sides. This recipe calls for loin chops, but you can use rib chops as well. Be sure to adjust your cooking times if doing so.
