  • If desired, turn marinade into a finishing sauce: After removing meat, pour marinade into a nonreactive saucepan, and boil for 3 minutes. Brush on cooked meat just before serving.

Cook's Notes

This marinade works best with lamb chops, rack, steaks, or butterflied leg of lamb. Marinate the lamb overnight, and then grill over medium-high heat to desired doneness.
