How to Make It

Step 1

Whisk together dry red wine, orange juice, garlic, shallots, rosemary, oregano, and olive oil in a small bowl. Pour mixture into a large heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag, reserving 1/4 cup; add lamb chops. Seal bag, and chill 2 hours.

Step 2

Remove chops from marinade, discarding marinade. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place chops on a lightly greased rack in a broiler pan.

Step 3

Stir together reserved 1/4 cup wine mixture and honey.

Step 4

Broil chops 3 inches from heat (with electric oven door partially open) 5 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness, basting with honey mixture after 3 minutes. If using loin chops instead of rib chops, broil loin chops 3 more minutes on each side.
