4-6 lamb loin chops
1/4 cup olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced (more or less depending on your love of garlic)
pepper paste (or any fresh chopped pepper or pepper flakes) optional if you don't like spicy, just omit the pepper
salt and pepper to taste
Lay your lamb loin chops on a platter and start by drizzling the olive oil to both sides of the chops and rub the oil all over the chops. Sprinkle both sides of the chops with salt and pepper, then spread the pepper paste on one side of the chops.
Top with the garlic and shawarma and let sit out and marinate and come to room temperature for about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, fire up your grill on high. When you're ready to grill the chops, lower your temperature to medium and grill the chops on each side for about 3-5 minutes depending on the thickness of your chops and how well you like your lamb done. I served my chops with a garlic yogurt-cucumber sauce (kind of like Tzatziki sauce, but a bit chunkier), rice and fried zucchini.
Avesta Garlic Yogurt-Cucumber Sauce:
1 cup greek style yogurt (if you can't find greek style plain yogurt, you can substitute with regular plain yogurt that's been strained)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup chopped english cucumber
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
salt to taste
Combine all the ingrediets in a bowl, chill until ready to serve.
