    Hi! This is Noor and I would just like to add a comment about the recipe. One lady commented about not over marinating the meat and she is right. I actually meant to write in the recipe to marinate for 1 to 2 hours and no more than 2. I know lamb chops are an expensive cut of meat and what would be more disappointing than to over marinate and have them too salty. Lastly, if I may suggest to anyone that loves middle-eastern food, I often add 1/8 teaspoon each: cinnamon, allspice and garam masala. They add a delicate flavor that is perfect with the lamb. ***I tried to submit with no stars and it wouldn't go thru, so I also give them 5 stars!***  -  28 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I was a little concerned about using vinegar as a marinade here, but took a chance based on the was FANTASTIC! We loved these chops and so did our 2 and 5 year old children. They were super-easy to prepare. You HAVE to keep the onions and do this : make a little tray using two layers of aluminum foil. Spray it with cooking spray and place (drained onions) on it and carefully place tray on grill, alongside the chops. We cooked our chops on med-hi for 8 mins. exactly and in that time the onions cooked and carmelized a bit and man, they were tasty. Next time I will at least double the onions, they were that good. Also, I would not recommend leaving the chops in any longer than the 2 hours stated in the recipe.  -  26 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Whoa Sister...Awesome! My hubby and I loved this so much. I usualy use a marinade of: plain yogurt, garlic/ginger paste, fried onions, lemon juice, 1TB oil, 1beef bullion cube, salt & pepper. But I was looking for something different than my usual. I prepared as the recipe stated, but only I marinated for an hr instead of 2 as per advice from reviewers and I baked in the oven (in an aluminum foil envelope) at 375 degrees instead of the grill, still the meat was so tender and very well seasoned. This is my menu choice for the month so will be making this for 3 more times on this months dinner menu and for special ocassions in the future. I also live in the Khaleej-UAE and hope to find more recipes posted by this cook. Thanks a million.  -  06 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
