Yummy! I used lamb T-Bones, which I marinated for about 10 hours before tossing on the grill. The flavor of the lemon is just wonderful, a great complement to the natural flavor of the lamb. I love how simple this is, easy enough to put together before work; and a great dinner waiting when I get home :)

I used lamb forequarter chops for this recipe, and let it marinade over night.
The only change I made was to use fresh oregano instead of dried and DS & DH said
"They loved the flavours of this marinade". I do not eat lamb, and am going on their opinion's, and believe me if they comment it must be good.
A very simple and easy marinade to make, with ingredient's that I usually on hand.
A great marinade for B.B.Q. lamb.
Thank's Pat.

This recipe is very similar to one that I found in Cooking Light. My family loved this simple but easy marinade that was a snap to make up. The only changes I made was that I added 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper to the marinade. I served this with grilled baby red potatoes and roasted asparagus. This recipe is definately a keeper!!
