    Default Looking for tried and priven spicy marinade or rub for grilled or roasted lamb.

    I love lamb, but I'm getting a little bored with the recipes I have.
    All of them seem a little bland.

    If anyone has a rub or marinade that goes well with and livens up the
    lamb a bit, I'd love to try it. Let me know what cuts it works best
    with also please.

    I don't like mint. I do love spicy food and curries. Tell me the
    appropriate side dishes that you like with your lamb. I need to get
    out of the same-old, same old methods I've been using.

    Crock pot and pressure cooker recipes welcome also!

    What's your favorite?

    Thanks!

    The lamb grilling thread got me thinking about when I used to grill
    boneless leg of lamb with a thick chili paste with garlic and I
    harissa paste should be good too. If you can find harissa, google
    "lamb +harissa" recipes. This was the first one and it looks like a
    winner.

    Here's the recipe I used for the marinade. I can't tell you what
    brand the chili paste with garlic was, but it was as thick as tomato
    paste. I've tried making this marinade with loose chili sauce they
    try to pass off as chili paste but the taste isn't close enough for me
    to recommend using it.

    Lamb Marinade

    Mix together:
    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    1T soy sauce
    1T chili paste with garlic
    1t rice wine vinegar
    2t toasted sesame oil

    As far as other lamb recipes, I looked at a variety of ways to cook
    lamb before I saw your post this morning (if you don't like mint just
    leave it out - don't let one herb stop you).

    Here are some recipes I saved for myself

    Side dishes are up to you as far as what "appropriate" means. I often
    mix cultures on the plate.
