Lamb Chops with Rosemary Butter (Keto)

I am quite vocal about how lamb is my favourite meat, I love it! Here, my butcher hooked me up with fantastic cutlets and we simply cooked them on the braai (BBQ). Lamb and rosemary go so well together, so I made a quick flavoured butter beforehand to melt on top and #PimpMyChops. And, since its the Bank Holiday weekend coming up here in the UK, why not enjoy these with my Tear-and-Share Keto Garlic Bread and a lovely salad on the side.

Servings 6 people (2 chops each)

Per serving

Calories: 607kcal | Protein: 49g | Fat: 49g


  • 3 rosemary sprigs
  • 75 g (2.7 oz) unsalted butter, softened (room temp)
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • generous pinch of salt
  • 12 lamb chops
  • smoked sea salt flakes
  • freshly ground black pepper


  • Start with the rosemary butter. Remove the leaves from the rosemary sprigs and chop very finely.
  • Add the softened butter to a small bowl and tip in the chopped rosemary. Use a garlic press to crush the garlic cloves into the bowl. (NOTE: I used a garlic press here to ensure I only yielded the lovely inner garlic flesh. Discard the bits left in the press between crushing each clove.)
  • Season the butter with salt and combine well before tipping out onto a sheet of cling film.
  • Roll the butter in the cling film to form an even-sized 'log', approximately 3cm / 1" in diameter (you will be slicing them into 12 discs later, so estimate with a little logic here). Twist the ends and place in the fridge to set firm for at least 40 minutes.
  • To cook, prepare your braai (BBQ). Once the coals are ready, season the chops with a little salt, then cook them as you normally would on the grill, turning occasionally until done to your liking.
  • Just before the lamb chops are done, remove the log of butter from the fridge, unwrap the cling film and slice into 12 even-sized discs.
  • Place a disc onto each chop and allow to melt. Season with smoked sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper.

A new-and-improved version of this delicious recipe features in my cookbook KETO KITCHEN.
