This lemon rub is great on lamb and chicken. The mint and lemon are a classic combination. Slow roasted in the oven, they gave the meat a slight citrus flavor. The rub was used to season pasture raised lamb spareribs Incredible flavor and a great crust on the ribs.
We also used the rub on a whole chicken with great results.

  1. In a medium bowl combine lemon peel and dry spices. Rub on the meat. Drizzle the meat with 2 Tbsp olive oil. Squeeze the 1/2 lemon over the meat, then sprinkle the wine on the meat. Let sit at least 2 hours or overnight. Place the ribs in a roasting pan and drizzle with 2 Tbsp more olive oil and sprinkle with 2 Tbsp brown sugar. Slow roast the lamb at 250 degrees. Check for tenderness at 2 1/2 hours. Meat should be falling off the bone when done. Cook up to 3 hours. Remove the meat from the oven and cut into individual ribs. Serve.

    Combined the rub with lemon juice and olive oil and used it as a dressing on cooked vegetables. Very tasty!
