3 tb Dijon mustard 2 ts Garlic; minced 2 tb Balsamic vinegar 1/2 ts Kosher salt 1/8 ts Black pepper; freshly ground 1/2 c Olive oil, extra-virgin 1/4 c Basil; julienned 12 Rib lamb chops, 1 1/2" thick 1. In a nonreactive bowl, combine the Dijon mustard, garlic, vinegar, salt, and pepper with 2 tsp water. Slowly whisk in the olive oil to form a creamy marinade. Stir in the cut basil. 2. Add the chops to the marinade and toss to coat evenly. Marinate the chops for 1 to 3 hours, covered and refrigerated. 3. Preheat a grill, grill pan, or barbecue to very hot. Shake the excess marinade from the chops and grill 4 to 5 mins a side for medium-rare, or slightly longer for more well done. Transfer to a warm platter and serve. NOTE: This a "finger food", meant to be eaten hot-off-the-grill.
