Instructions Checklist
  • In a food processor, combine the 1/2 cup of cilantro leaves with the garlic and mint and pulse until coarsely chopped. Add 1/3 cup of the lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, the paprika, black pepper, cumin, turmeric, fennel seeds, cayenne, cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of kosher salt. Process until a paste forms. Put the chops in a baking dish, pour the marinade over them and turn to coat.

  • Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Grill the chops over a medium-high fire for 8 minutes, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of a chop registers 125° to 130° for medium rare. Transfer the chops to a platter and let rest for 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the tahini and water with the remaining 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. Garnish the chops with the chopped cilantro and serve with the tahini sauce.
