- 3 American Lamb sirloin steaks or 6 shoulder chops (approximately 2 pounds), cut 3/4 to 1-inch thick
- To make barbecue sauce, heat oil over medium-high heat in large skillet. Cook onion for 4 minutes. Add brown sugar; stir until melted. Add remaining ingredients; heat through and set aside.
- Grill lamb steaks 4 inches from medium-hot coals for 7 to 10 minutes per side or to desired degree of doneness: 145° F for medium-rare, 160° F for medium, or 170° F for well. Baste chops frequently with sauce during the last 7 minutes of cooking.
