2 tablespoons white sugar
freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

Place the lamb chops into a roasting pan, and season evenly with the garlic, garlic powder, chili powder, sugar, salt, and pepper. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of lime juice, soy sauce and olive oil. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F  Allow the lamb to stand at room temperature while the oven preheats.
