    Super easy, Mark Bittman recipe. These are delicious. (I left in all the notes from the article. )

    Grilled Lamb With Miso-Chili Sauce

    Recipe By :Mark Bittman
    Serving Size : 4

    1 cup dark (red) miso
    1 tablespoon minced ginger
    1 teaspoon minced garlic
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne -- or to taste
    Mirin -- sake or white wine as needed
    1 1/2 pounds to 2 lbs 1 inch thick medallions of lamb,
    -- cut from the boneless rack or tenderloin. (1 1/2 to 2)


    1. Combine miso, ginger, garlic and cayenne in a large bowl, then thin with a little mirin or sake, just until mixture is pasty. Spread meat with this paste, then proceed, or cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.

    2. Start a charcoal fire or gas grill, or preheat broiler or oven; rack should be 4 inches or less from heat source. Grill, broil or roast meat, about 4 minutes a side, until outside is crisp and inside medium-rare. Serve immediately.

    Source:
    "NYTimes.com"




    NOTES : While miso loses some of its subtlety when it is exposed to intense, direct heat, grilling isn't about subtlety anyway, especially when you add ginger, garlic and chili. These are strong ingredients, but ones that also prove that miso can stand up to almost anything. When you combine all of these, spread them on meat and blast it with direct heat, the dominant flavor remains miso. And it's delicious.
    From the Mark Bittman article:
    You can use this type of marinade on beef (especially rib-eye, but it works to jazz up tenderloin, too), or pork or tuna and it's great on all of them. But it really shines on lamb, whose mild gaminess adds yet another bold flavor to the mix.

    Use any cut of chops or, best yet, medallions of boneless loin. With the exception of pork, all of these meats will cook to medium-rare in 10 minutes or less on a grill. And all of them will perform just as well in a broiler. I give directions for both techniques here, just in case your grilling season hasn't begun.

    If you shop for miso in a Japanese store, you might see if you can find some kanzuri, a chili paste made with yuzu (Japanese citrus). This makes the marinade even easier to make: just blend miso with kanzuri to taste, and omit the ginger, garlic and chili.

    My Note: watch carefully... the miso burns easily. I used the yellow shiro miso... it'd probably be better with the dark red miso.

    2 large garlic cloves, crushed
    1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves
    1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
    Pinch cayenne pepper
    Coarse sea salt
    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    6 lamb chops, about 3/4-inch thick
    Directions
    In a food processor fitted with a metal blade add the garlic, rosemary, thyme, cayenne, and salt. Pulse until combined. Pour in olive oil and pulse into a paste. Rub the paste on both sides of the lamb chops and let them marinate for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator. Remove from refrigerator and allow the chops to come to room temperature; it will take about 20 minutes.

    lemon, crushed garlic, olive oil, --marinate overnight, then salt and pepper right before grilling, if they are the baby chops they will take 2-3 minutes on each side for med rare

    The marinade would still work, but I know what you mean. You would probably have to buy miso. And mirin. :ufacepalm:
