4 Loin or Rib Chops
1Tbl Kosher Salt
1Tbl Black pepper
1Tbls Garlic powder
1tsp. Mrs. Dash (original)
1tsp Tony Chacheres
Mix together the spices and pat each chop into the mixture. Be sure the entire chop is coated on both sides. Let them sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes and then throw them on the grill. You can also cook them in the cast iron skillet. Recommended internal temperature for lamb is 145°F. Remove the chops from the grill and cover with foil for 10 minutes. This will allow the chops to cook a bit more and be even more mouth watering. When cooking a chop think of it as a steak and you will be just fine.
