Lamb with Spicy Apricot Sauce

Ingredients
4
lamb loin chops, cut 1 inch thick
1/4
cup apricot spreadable fruit
2
tablespoons white wine vinegar
2
teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
1/2
teaspoon ground turmeric
1/8
teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2
teaspoon bottled minced garlic
1
tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1
teaspoon olive oil
1/4
teaspoon salt
 
Hot cooked couscous (optional)
 
Hot cooked peas (optional)

Directions

  1. Trim fat from chops; set chops aside. In a small bowl stir together apricot spreadable fruit, white wine vinegar, mustard, turmeric, cayenne pepper, and garlic. Set aside.
  2. In another small bowl stir together ginger, olive oil, and salt. Spoon ginger mixture evenly over chops; rub in with your fingers.
  3. Place chops on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill to desired doneness, turning once and brushing with apricot mixture during the last 5 minutes of grilling. (Allow 12 to 14 minutes for medium-rare doneness [145 degrees F] or 15 to 17 minutes for medium doneness [160 degrees F].) Discard any remaining apricot mixture.
  4. If desired, toss together couscous and peas; serve with chops. Makes 4 servings.
