I used the marinade for some lovely lamb chops I had and then proceeded to grill the recipe in the oven. The marinade added many delightful elements to the lamb - each bite being sweet/savoury/tart/spicy. Yummy!

Oh, this was fantastic! I made this for our lunch today & we both loved it. I had the leg of lamb boned & butterflied to speed cooking & make carving easier. Only had time to marinate for an hour. After cooking, I removed the drip tray, drained some of the fat, then put it on the stove & added the reserved marinade. This sauce was the perfect addition to the meal. Served with roast potatoes & steamed veg. Thanks Rita for sharing this keeper. Made for ZWT4
