If you want the lamb chops to be rare you'd better pull them at 125 degrees. Waiting until they are 135 (which is on the medium side of medium rare) they will coast well into the medium doneness.

This is a simple, but impressive dish. The berry sauce poured over the lamb chops make a pretty presentation.
