1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium shallot, coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dried Greek oregano
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped rosemary
1 1/2 pounds leg or lamb, or lamb chops or rack of lamb
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, garlic, shallot, salt, pepper, oregano, and rosemary. Pour over the lamb, and marinate for at least 2 hours, or up to 12 hours.
Preheat the grill for 10 minutes. Drain the marinade, and grill the lamb for 3 minutes on each side, until the lamb is cooked to medium (pink in the center) Remove from the grill, and serve with warm pita, tzatziki sauce and salad.
Marinating the lamb--look at the golden color of the oil---bellissimo!
I hope you all have a great night, I'm expecting our family here on Saturday, so my posts will be sporadic next week, but look for photos from our wine tastings, and I've ordered some black truffles to make truffle pasta while they are here....until next time, enjoy your night.
