    Chabear01's Note:

    I soooooo love lamb, and this makes up into one very delicious meal. I got this out of a Sunset Magazine with an article on Orcas Island recipes, which when visiting Washington State be sure to take the Ferry out and visit this spectacular place.

    Yogurt mint sauce


    1. 1
      In a blender, whirl yellow onion, garlic, rosemary, lemon juice, and salt. With blender running, slowly pour in olive oil.
    2. 2
      Rinse lamb and pat dry. With a small knife, make small slashes (1 inch long and 1 inch deep) all over the lamb, and put it in a nonreactive dish. Coat lamb with onion marinade, making sure the mixture gets into the slits. Cover and chill 2 hours or up to overnight, turning occasionally.
    3. 3
      Remove lamb from refrigerator about 1 hour before you plan to cook it. Spread lamb flat on an oiled barbeque grill over a solid bed of medium-heat on a gas grill (you can hold your hand 1 to 2 inches above grill level only 4 to 5 seconds.). Close lid. Cook lamb, turning once and brushing with marinade, until a thermometer inserted in center of thickest part registers 140 degrees, about 40 minutes.
    4. 4
      Transfer meat to a platter and cover. Let rest 15 to 20 minutes. Thinly slice meat, garnish with sliced red onion and radishes, and serve with yogurt-mint sauce.

      Yogurt-Mint Sauce:.
    6. 6

      The other night i made this recipe and it turned out fantastic! The onion marinade was awesome and the lamb turned out very tender and full of flavor. The only thing i did differently is substituted mint for the rosemary. However i will stick with mint jelly or horseradish because i did not think the sauce was good.
