Lamb Marinade

Lamb Marinades are seasoned liquid mixtures that add flavor and, in some cases, help tenderize lamb. A tenderizing marinade must contain an acidic ingredient such as lemon juice, yogurt, wine or vinegar.

What to Marinate: Less tender cuts of lamb should be marinated to enhance tenderness. Tender cuts of lamb can be marinated for flavor.

How to Marinate Lamb:
  • Marinate in the refrigerator, NEVER at room temperature.
  • Marinate in a food-safe plastic bag or glass utility dish.
  • Turn meat occasionally during marinating so that all sides are equally exposed to marinade.
  • Allow 1/4 to 1/2 cup marinade for each 1 to 2 pounds of lamb.
When to Marinate Lamb:
  • For Flavor only, marinate for 15 min. to 2 hrs.
  • For Tenderizing, marinate 4 - 6 hours.
  • Marinating longer than 24 hours can result in a mushy surface texture.
