  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 6 lamb loin chops, fat trimmed
  • 2 large brown onions, sliced into thin rings
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and sliced finely into rounds (about 1/2 cm thick)
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


Step 1
Preheat the barbecue, with the hotplate in, for direct cooking.

Once the barbecue is preheated, turn all the burners to medium. Lightly coat the hotplate with the olive oil.

Step 2
Lay the potatoes evenly over half the hotplate. Add the onions to the hotplate and season with salt and pepper.

Step 3
Once the onions and potatoes are cooking, place the sausages and trimmed lamb chops directly on the grill. 

Close the lid and cook for 4 to 6 minutes, stirring the onions occasionally.  Open the lid and turn the potatoes, lamb chops and sausages.

Step 4
Close the lid and cook for a further 4 to 6 minutes, stirring the onions occasionally.

Step 5
Remove from the grill and season the lamb chops and potatoes with salt and pepper, to taste.
