This dish is absolutely superb! I've always loved lamb and I bought it at the store not knowing what to do with it so I used my imagination. It's moist and tender, full of flavour.
Made only a couple of changes - roasted the garlic with olive oil and Italian Herbs. I mixed the olive oil and red wine together, added the oil from the garlic and a dash more Italian Herbs. I had two racks of baby lamb, so I split them, rubbed them with the roasted garlic and marinated them for about 5 hours. They were awesome. Made an easy port/red wine sauce to go with. Thanks Cassandra! This was my first go at lamb - great base recipe! - 18 Aug 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My husband loves lamb so I thought I would give this a try. It was very easy to make and my husband loved it...I will definitely make it again. I made 4 chops instead of 2, but didn't change the amount of garlic, used the same amount of oil and just poured the wine in until it covered the chops. - 23 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I was really excited after reading the reviews for this. I have made lamb with wine before and didn't think there was much risk. I wasn't impressed at all and won't be making again, I have to agree with the previous reviews; waste too much olive oil and the combination of thyme and red wine did nothing for me. Sorry. - 27 Aug 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
