It is easy, how to cook lamb. Two words: grill it! It is a perfect meat to throw on the grill and make your dinner first class. Try the following great recipes.
The more familiar cuts you see in the market: the leg, loin, and rack. All of these take to the grill well, adding that smokey savory flavoring.
It is truly a matter of taste but as a general rule, if you have a thermometer and wish to check it this way if you are not comfortable with the touch method
Rare: 125' F on chops and roasts
Medium rare: 135' F
Medium: 145' F
Medium well: 155' F on all cuts except ground: 160' F

Using a marinade or dry rub work quite well. There is so much more to eating it than with the old mint jelly. We love using fresh herbs, like rosemary and oregano. Making a sauce to go with it is nice. Grilling up some veggies with the chops is an excellent idea, as well.
