This is an awesome treat for the grill. We raise grass-fed lambs that are weaned naturally. Experimenting with lamb recipes over the past 15 years has become a hobby. Lamb and garlic go so well together. In this recipe, the combination of herbs and spices complement this meat and make a great family-and-friend favorite.

I love this recipe! The first time I made it my husband said he could eat it every day but I'm limiting him to once/week! We don't add the cherries - too sweet for our tastes. Tastes great without them! Read More

The marinade was great - just totally overpowered the lamb. When I eat lamb I want to taste the lamb especially considering the cost of lamb. Perhaps if I just brushed it over the lamb on the grill instead of marinating it that would have been better. But I don't think I would waste more lamb on this recipe sorry. Read More

Excellent mariade. Easy and flavorful. I didn't even watch the proportions-- just threw together in a plastic bag, dropped in meat and let sit overnight. Read More

My wife is not normally a lamb eater but this marinade has changed that! We buy boned leg of lamb cut into kabob sizes and mix the marinade and lamb in a large container, let it sit overnight then transfer to ziplock bags with 2-3 servings per bag. Freeze and pull out for an easy barbeque. Wonderful! Read More

Cut recipe in third....mostly 2 tablespoons of the Dijon mustard. marinaded for about 2 hours. This was really tasty. Did not add any of the fruit just peppers onions and mushrooms. Dredged them in the sauce when I put on the skewer. Served with spinach salad and pilaf great! Read More
