It’s time once again for International Eat a Tasty Animal for PETA (IEATAPETA) day!

This is one of my favorite recipes for this day:

Lamb Chops Vesuvio

1/2 cup olive oil
2 tbs lemon juice
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp garlic salt
lamb chops (4-6)

make more marinade for more chops (works with chicken too!)

Mix first 4 ingredients in a small bowl. Place lamb chops in an oven proof dish. Pour the marinade over the lamb chops, turning to ensure even coating. Bake at 350 ° F for 30-45 minutes until desired level of doneness.

This can also be done nicely on the grill, marinate meat for approximately 1/2 hour prior to grilling to desired doneness.

Suggested sides: Twice baked potatoes, asparagus, or brussels sprouts. Rice Pilaf also makes a nice side for this dish.
