Directions

  1. Stir ketchup with Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, garlic, parsley, oregano, lemon zest, pepper and salt. Divide mixture in half.
  2. Thread onion slices onto skewers so that they resemble lollipops. Brush half the marinade over lamb and onions. Marinate for 15 minutes. Preheat grill to medium. Set onions and lamb on grill, meaty side down.
  3. Grill, turning and basting often, for 25 minutes or until medium-rare. Grill onions for the same time, turning as needed. Rest meat for 10 minutes. Cut into 2 rib portions. Serve with onion rings.

My husband loves rack of lamb so I chose this recipe for Father's Day. Unfortunately, there were no racks at the supermarket so I made do with some very nice lamb chops instead. The marinade was simple and a very bright tasting barbecue sauce. The cooking instructions were way off for the onion lollipops though. I should have listened to my own cooking instincts and cooked them over INDIRECT heat for the stated time. My first batch of onions burned within five minutes of hitting the grill. Easily put more together and made a new batch.I had to adjust the cooking time for medium rare chops too. All in all a good barbecues lamb recipe. I would like to try this with a boneless leg of lamb on the rotisserie some time. Thanks for the tasty recipe.
