Grilled lamb sirloin


I love barbecued lamb! Often, we won't do much more than just season with salt and pepper, but this marinade really goes very well with lamb. Or any other meat, for that matter.

Grilled lamb sirloin
about 150 g per serving

100 ml olive oil
2 garlic cloves, finely sliced
2-3 sprigs of fresh lemon thyme
2 tsp salt
2 tsp runny honey
black pepper

Mix the marinade in a plastic bag, and add the lamb. Let it sit over night, preferrably, and turn it around a few times so that it coats the meat evenly. Keep it in the fridge, but remember to let it sit at room temperature for a few hours before cooking, you don't want to put cold meat on the grill.


Barbecue it on medium high heat until done - I like my lamb medium-rare - and serve with something yummy. We had a salad with feta cheese and quinoa, and a simple cold yogurt sauce.

Sounds perfect for summer.
Lamb's probably my favourite meat. And BBQs are one of my favourite ways to eat. How can it be possible that I've never BBQ'd my favourite meat before?

That looks so fantastic.

Looks so lucious and EASY! Do you have tomatoes in your salad?

This looks heavenly. Lamb is absolutely my favorite meat, but it's very expensive here.

Wendy, Julia, Kalyn - I really love lamb! It's not cheap here either, but it's not much more expensive than beef, either. (In fact, sometimes cheaper.)

Winedeb - for that particular salad, no. It's red peppers, cucumber, feta cheese, quinoa and pickled red onions.

Wow! That looks a lot like something that I already do... except I never thought of adding honey. I'll have to try that. Thanks! :D
