GRILLED LAMB LOLLIPOPS
A lamb lollipop is a trimmed lamb cutlet also known as a french trimmed rib chop. Frenched rack of lamb, or lamb lollipops, is when the bone has been cleaned of meat and fat and makes a prettier presentation. You can find lamb already frenched at the grocery store or ask your butcher to do it.
Lamb lollipops, or cutlets, are incredibly delicious and tender.
However, as a general rule, it’s impolite to eat lamb chops or lamb lollipops with your fingers. Etiquette instructors advise to always use a knife and fork to cut the meat, leaving behind any stray bits of meat.

Most people recommend cooking lamb to medium-rare. Use an instant-read thermometer to accurately determine the internal temperature of your lamb.
For medium-rare, cook until the internal temperature reaches 130-135 degrees Fahrenheit.
