Mint-Tomato Sauce for Lamb

Mint-Tomato Sauce for Lamb

Shandeen Gemanis 1

"I received this fresh-from-the-garden recipe from a friend after my husband and I fell in love with it at her summer barbecue. We use it to accompany our Easter leg of lamb or grilled lamb chops, and end up sopping up the leftovers with bread as we can't stand to let it go to waste!"

I had to rate this a 5!! It is a wierd sounding recipe, but since odd flavors sometimes blend well, I tried it for an Easter lamb roast and once my guest started using the sauce, they couldn't stop! It is perfect accompanyment for Lamb. Thank you for the recipe


I was in charge of a Seder Meal and made 110 lbs of roasted lamb and knew I wouldn't have time to deglaze pans and make a gravy so with the great reviews on this sauce I made a million or so batches and wow what a hit. It made me love lamb, not just tolerate it. Thank you thank you for posting.


Wow, this was amazing! My husband and I were practically licking the plate! I'm trying to figure out what else I can put it on--it's that good!
