    *Reviewed for WHine and Cheese Gangs ZWT6 visit to Greece* So easy and my husband loved this marinade. I could only get lamb loin chops so used eight chops in place of the 4 lamb steaks. Couldn't find my tobasco just added extra feshly ground mixed peppers. Otherwise, kept to the recipe as written. My husband cooked the chops on the BBQ and we served them with recipe#378643. Great marinade. Photo also to be posted. Thanks Marra for a great recipe :)

    This was still so good even with my little oops (after putting the lamb loin chops into the marinade and coating them well I suddenly realized I had put nutmeg in and not cinnamon, pulled the chops out and put a good dose of cinnamon in and whisked and put the chops back in). Cooked in the frypan about 3 to 4 minutes per side for lovely tender pink lamb chops which were enjoyed by the DM and DS and myself (I used 8 lamb loin chops for the 3 of us - the DM only eats 2). Thank you MarraMamba. made for I Recommend Tag Game and recommended by Kim127.

    Great Marinade! My BBQ wasn't working so I broiled the lamb chops. I did not use the tabasco. We don't really like the taste. I marinaded the lamb for five hours. Thanks for sharing.

    Awesome!! Loved this lamb, the tabasco was a great touch. For a personal preference I cut the cinnamon to 1/2 tsp and that worked for us. Made for ZWT6 - Team SSaSSy!!

    Very, very good! I think the hot sauce in the marinade is the trick. Thank you.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY I am a middle aged foodie who has had the luxury of living all over the world except asia. Lived in or grew up in Nigeria, Kenya, Chicago, Russia,and haiti. born in New Zealand, brother born in Austria and many more. I have chronic medication resistant depression after 10 years on anti depressants that worked well but would stop working after a year or two, so now do my best at home living on disabilty. Not a bad thing, many have far worse health issues but i have been able to concentrate on food/cooking. My main passions are my cats. I live in the woods and somehow many starving strays or "dumps" have found the message babies who passed on left in the woods saying "suck lives at xxxx road. Most arrive sick and/or starving. Right now i have 2 that arrived with feline herpes and their attendant 2ndry bacterial infections but are doing beautifully. One old man who was going to be euthanized bc a lady who found him as a stray was moving and didnt want him...well he was a biter and rather grumpy who was in ICU for 3 days with a deadly gut infection which was fixed but he left with a diagnosis of diabetes. 3 months on insulin and finally diet controlled and he caught the herpes virus, respiratory symptom version and turned into a cuddler. Butterscotch must think "why didnt i figure out this cuddle stuff was great before i got sick!" Doing wonderfully even though he has bouts. he and the other kids are my babies. Sadly Butterscotch died of Lymphatic cancer in winter of 2008. A year before Big Boy arrived in my life, starving and weak. Full of affection he jumped into my arms and stayed, turns out he has FIV (cat hiv) so he needs to be watched closely. I love him dearly <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="">
