I only selected this recipe for the herb rub, as I prefer gravy rather than a glaze...I didn't have any Savory, so I Googled for a substitute and used thyme instead...The rub was perfect and work very well for my lamb...Perhaps some day I'll be adventurous and try the glaze, LOL! Thank you for posting this recipe!
