  1. This couln't have been better!<br/>Thsi morning I bought some lamb and as I saw the recipe and the rosemary balsamico option I thought that I have to try it.<br/>The most lamb recipes I did included thyme or oregano and never balsamico.<br/>The meat turned out delicious, juicy and tasty.<br/>Thanks a lot for remember us to let the meat sit before :yummy!
  2. The marinade really imparted a lot of flavor and doing it on the bbq didn't hurt any at all. Made as directed except that I had to use dried rosemary. It came out very juicy and delicious and I'll use this again. Made for ZWT8.
  3. G-O-O-D!!! Ok, so my first experiment with Costa Rican lamb was, hmmmm, interesting. I tried two separate recipes to see what would happen. It turns out the lamb here is like the beef - tough. However, this recipe came out the most tender and the flavor was out of this world. I would like to try this again and increase the marinating time or add something that would tenderize a bit more. Maybe papaya or kiwi? But that is just because the meat is not very good here. This marinade on New Zealand lamb would be awesome. Made for ZWT8 - Australia. Thanks, Jubes!
  4. Made this for Hubby and Little Miss (DD) and they really enjoyed this marinate. I had the lamb cutlets marinating for several hours and they told me the flavours really soaked up. Served with cherry tomatoes and basil salad. Thanks **Jubes** for a great recipe.
  5. Made for ZWT Family Picks as 1 last effort to use our Icelandic lamb in the waning dys of the Tour, I added another way to use your recipe that was excellent & "erased" marinating time. Using a mixture of cutlets & chops (definitely in an amt greater than 4 portions), I made the marinade in a bowl, added the lamb & made sure it was well-coated as you directed. Then I dumped the mixture (marinade & meat) into my crockpot & cooked them together for 8 hrs on high, adding carrots at the "half". The lamb & carrots were very tender & well-flavoured, but I wasn't done. I used a rubber spatula to loosen the cooking "remnants", strained the crockpot liquid, returned it to the crockpot & added cous cous to absorb the luscious liquid. This method made for a terrific meal & all of it flavoured by the marinade. We loved it & your recipe. Thx for sharing it w/us. :-)
