  1. Trim, rinse and pat dry the lamb chops.
  2. Using a spice grinder or mortar and pestle, pulverize the garlic, rosemary, thyme and oregano or savory. The mixture should be a paste.
  3. Rub the lamb chops all over with the herb and garlic mixture. Place in a single layer in a shallow bowl and pour in the wine and olive oil. Cover and marinate for 2 to 24 hours in the refrigerator. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before grilling.
  4. Light the grill to medium-high according to individual unit directions. Place the lamb chops over direct heat and grill, turning once about halfway through. They will need about 6-8 minutes for rare, 8-10 minutes for medium, 12-15 minutes for well done.
