Coronado Brewing Orange Wit Lamb Chops

Coronado Brewing makes an excellent orange wit beer great for a warm summer day. The crisp citrus flavor makes it a refreshing beer easily enjoyable at any time. I thought this would go great with some lamb. This recipe tries to highlight the flavor of a light wit with the citrus flavors.

  • 1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 lime
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary leaves
  • 2 tablespoons thyme leaves 
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 12 oz Coronado Brewing Orange Wit
  • 2-4 lamb chops


  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon butter


Marinate the lamb chops in the white vinegar, salt, black pepper, garlic, onion, lemon, lime, orange wit, thyme, rosemary, and olive oil for 2-3 hours. Pour the other half of the orange wit into a glass and enjoy while you wait.

After marinating, heat a skillet to medium/high heat and preheat the oven to 400F

Add some olive oil and add the lamb chops to the skillet. Cook for 3-5 minutes on both sides depending on the size of the chops and your preference of rareness. Allow onions and herbs to stick to the chops while cooking.

After both sides have been cooked, place in the oven and cook for 8-10 minutes depending on your preference of rareness.

While the chops are baking, reduce the marinade with the butter and balsamic vinegar to half to become a thicker sauce to be poured over the marinade.

Enjoy with a nice red wine or pair with a Saison, Belgian, or any beer that you prefer!

Beer Review

This is a great, easy to drink beer especially for people that are just starting to get into beer or people that aren’t the biggest beer drinkers. It is light and smooth with flavors of citrus and wheat. There’s not a lot of complexity with this beer, but it is great to relax with during the summer to drink a few out under the sun. If you’re having people over, I recommend buying a 6 pack of this to share. I rate this an 8/10.


This is the first recipe of Drew2Apps. I hope you enjoy. I personally enjoy this with mash potatoes and asparagus on the side. I enjoy how the orange with softens up the lamb while providing an extra citrus kick with the lemon and lime. There are many ways to cook lamb and I hope this is one way to add to your tool belt. Hope you enjoy!
