Honey-orange lamb

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
¼ cup Soy sauce
¾ cup Pinot noir (Burgundy)
¼ cup Orange juice (juice of 1 orange)
2 tablespoons Lemon juice (juice of 1 lemon)
2 tablespoons Honey
1 teaspoon Mustard, dry
1 cup Tomato puree (puree of 1 tomato)
3 \N Garlic cloves (or more to taste)
¼ teaspoon Black pepper, ground
1 \N Half leg of lamb, butterflied

Mix together all of the ingredients except the lamb. Place the lamb in a bowl or pan that will not be corroded by the marinade (a glass 9x13 pan works well). Pour the marinade over the lamb. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 12 hours, turning occasionally.

Start a fire in the grill and get the coals very warm but not flaming.

Place lamb on grill about 3-4 inches from the coals. Cook 20 minutes on each side.

After 10 minutes on the second side, start checking for doneness.

Contrary to many people's ideas, lamb should not be well done but should still be a little pink. When done, slice thin and serve.


* Grilled butterflied leg of lamb -- This recipe is the same as Anita Cochran's recipe for grilled butterflied leg of lamb, except that it uses a different marinade. I got the marinade recipe from a local wine merchant. Yield: Serves 4-6.

* This marinade also works well with chicken.

: Difficulty: easy.

: Time: 5 minutes preparation, overnight marinating, 40 minutes cooking. : Precision: no need to measure.
