For the Marinade:

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • ¼ teaspoon lemon myrtle or wattleseed optional
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Lamb Chops:

  • 8 bone-in lamb loin chops or lamb cutlets about 2.5 cm (1-inch) thick
  • Olive oil for brushing


  • In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, soy sauce, honey, oregano, thyme, cumin, coriander, lemon myrtle or wattleseed (if using), salt, and pepper until well combined.
  • Add the lamb chops to the marinade, ensuring they are evenly coated.
    Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 4 hours for deeper flavour infusion.
  • Preheat your barbecue or grill to medium-high heat. Lightly brush the grill grates with olive oil to prevent sticking.
  • Remove the lamb chops from the marinade, discarding any excess.
    Grill for 3-4 minutes per side, or until cooked to your desired level of doneness.


Recipe Tips:
  • For a more intense flavour, marinate the lamb chops overnight.
  • If you don't have lemon myrtle or wattleseed, you can substitute with other herbs like rosemary or sage.
  • Use a meat thermometer to ensure the lamb chops are cooked to your liking. For medium-rare, the internal temperature should reach 145°F (63°C), for medium, 160°F (71°C), and for medium-well, 170°F (77°C).

Serving Suggestions:

  • Serve the barbecued lamb chops with a side of fresh garden salad and roasted vegetables for a complete meal.
  • Pair the lamb chops with a refreshing mint and yoghurt sauce for a touch of coolness and creaminess.
  • Complement the lamb chops with a glass of hearty red wine for a perfect Aussie barbecue experience.
