Hot off the grill, these lamb chops are a crisp, fragrant centerpiece of the dinner table.

We’re huge fans of grillmaster Steven Raichlen’s smoky, meaty cookbooks. His latest work focuses on what makes signature grilled foods around the world so delicious. Dive into recipes for sauces, rubs, marinades, bastes, butters and much more. These Persian saffron lamb chops are an extra-fragrant addition to any barbecue. 

Iranians use complex marinades of yogurt and lemon and fragrant basting sauces of butter and saffron to create some of the most spectacular grilled lamb in the world. This recipe works equally well with other foods, including chicken, beef and seafood.
