Brazilian-style braai lamb chops

Here’s a recipe for Brazilian-style braai lamb chops, inspired by the flavors of Brazil’s traditional churrasco barbecue:


  • 8 lamb chops
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. In a small bowl, combine the minced garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, paprika, cumin, oregano, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to create a marinade.
  2. Place the lamb chops in a shallow dish or a resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over the lamb chops, ensuring they are coated evenly. Massage the marinade into the meat to enhance the flavor. Cover the dish or seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or ideally overnight, to allow the flavors to develop.
  3. Preheat your braai (barbecue) to medium-high heat.
  4. Remove the lamb chops from the marinade and let any excess drip off. Reserve the marinade for basting.
  5. Place the lamb chops on the preheated braai grill and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare, or adjust the cooking time to your desired level of doneness. While grilling, baste the lamb chops occasionally with the reserved marinade to keep them moist and flavorful.
  6. Once the lamb chops are cooked to your liking, remove them from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes.
  7. Serve the Brazilian-style braai lamb chops hot, garnished with freshly chopped parsley. They pair well with traditional Brazilian sides like rice, black beans, farofa (toasted cassava flour), and a fresh salad.

Enjoy the succulent and flavorful Brazilian-style braai lamb chops, perfect for a festive and delicious meal!
