Italian Grilled Mutton Chops

Italian Grilled Mutton Chops

This dish is flavoursome and incredibly easy to make, it would be rude not share this with your mates over the BBQ. Marinated mutton chops are grilled over a hot flame and served with mixed grains, rocket and plum tomatoes. Served with a pinch of gremolata and a glass of vino, this is the perfect meal to share.


12-16 Mutton Chops
800g Merchant Gourmet Italian Mixed Grains
250ml White Wine

2 tsp Peperoncino flakes
Handful Rocket
Handful Plum Tomatoes, sliced
1 garlic clove
2 tbsp Parsley, finely chopped

  • Place the mutton chops in a freezer bag and add the wine, olive oil, bay, peperoncino, lemon and Italian Stallion seasoning. Seal the bag and ensure the meat is coated before popping in the fridge overnight.
  • Remove the chops from the fridge and bring to room temp. Fire up your grill outdoors, or use a cast iron griddle on your hob and grill the chops 2-3 minutes either side depending on size).
  • Warm up the mixed grains for a few minutes then toss through some rocket and chopped tomatoes. Make the gremolata by mixing parsley, garlic clove and lemon zest together.
