"This is enough marinade for a butterflied leg of lamb. I also use it for chops & ribs. If you like a crust that is caramelized but not blackened, turn the meat regularly."

This marinade is fantastic!!! I used it with a Frenched rack of lamb. I let it marinate for 4 hours refrigerated then baked it in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes. We loved it. Thx for sharing this recipe here :)

This is a great marinade. I used lamb chops with the marinade. I marinated about 6 hours to let the ingredients incorporate into the meat. They turned out really moist and loaded with flavor. I had a Greek salad made to have with the lamb chops and it was a fabulous meal indeed!
