Dale's Lamb


"I call this Dale's Lamb because my late mother-in-law, Dale, gave me this recipe. Everyone who's ever tried this likes it, even my mom, who didn't care much for lamb. Hope you like it, too."

  1. In a bowl, mix the lemon juice, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, soy sauce, olive oil, garlic, ginger, salt, and pepper. Place the lamb in a shallow container. Pour the lemon juice mixture over the lamb. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator 8 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat. Drain marinade, and bring to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat to low, and simmer, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened.
  3. Lightly oil the grill grate. Over indirect heat, grill the lamb 40 to 50 minutes, turning to cook all sides, to a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Cool, slice, and cover with the thickened marinade mixture to serve.

Absolutely delicious! I used the marinade on a whole shoulder of lamb and then baked it. I drained the marinade off the meat before doing so. I used the marinade as suggested - pouring it ove...

I fell in love with Lamb when I was in Iraq, and have been looking for a high quality, very flavorful recipe for the past 3 years. This one fits that bill. I was seriously unsyre about the combi...

Excellent, very tender and very tasty. Lots of left overs for Lamb Chili afterwards. This is the only recipe I will use on the barbeque from now on!

YUM. Wow was this ever great. The marinade is key. My husband's family always has lamb for the holidays, but it was never all that... memorable. THIS year was different! Thanks so much!

Husband loved it. Marinaded overnight and then tossed it under the broiler. I also added rosemary. I am not a fan of lamb but I had to admit this was a good marinade. I will make this again.
