Marinated Lamb Loins Recipe Instructions

    1. In a small bowl, whisk together the orange juice, brown sugar, oil, rosemary and salt.

    2. Place the lamb in a shallow glass casserole dish and pour the mixture over the top. Turn the lamb over several times to coat. Cover the casserole and refrigerate for about 2 hours, turning occasionally.

    3. Preheat grill (or oven to 375 F).

    4. Remove the lamb from the marinade. Discard any un-used marinade. Place the lamb on the preheated grill (if roasting in the oven, place it on a baking sheet). Cook for about 15 minutes or until desired doneness. Let stand for 5 minutes. Slice diagonally into 1/2-inch slices and serve.
