"A great alternative to the usual lemon, garlic, rosemary seasoning for lamb. Lamb comes out juicy and flavorful. Baste is also good on other meats and poultry."

I made this in my crock pot instead of on the grill - same ingredients for the glaze, just pour it over the meat, then occasionally spooned over the meat as it cooks. Fantastic!

Were I am lamb is so expensive that this recipe does not rate a repeat. It was okay if you have lamb and are trying to find ways of cooking it. I had a "roast" that I cut in half to cook. Took well over the alloted time. Ended up putting this in the microwave so we could finally eat.

This recipe is a "must-have" in any cook's repertoire! It is fast, easy and my guests were thrilled with the results.

This was very good. I did add some rosemary but all in all followed the directions. I'm looking forward to trying it on other meats.

Wonderful flavor. I made this in the oven instead. It was a success with my husband. I will make this again and I have shared it with my Mom.

HUGE hit! I made this for Mother's Day and the platter was literally wiped clean. I prefer lamb on the rare side but for those that didn't I just zapped their serving in the microwave and everybody was happy. We will definitly have this again. I think I will try the glaze on lamb chops too.
