This is the perfect Must Try recipe for anyone who is wanting to try lamb,it's simply delicious.

My husband grew up eating plenty of lamb, I however never had it.I was raised strictly a beef gal. But when I did try lamb, I found the flavor of the meat much too strong, and "gamey". So I decided to take matters into my own hands one day, and actually cook it for the first time. I figured if I can't cook it and make myself like it, then I'm a lost cause. IT WAS DELICIOUS! My husband, even my kids loved it! I hope you enjoy as much as we did, and the wait is certainly worth it!
