"My family enjoys lamb, so I was delighted to discover lamb tenderloin at the supermarket. The butcher explained it's a perfect cut to slice and thread onto skewers. It has a wonderful flavor, and like beef and pork tenderloin, it's a lean and versatile choice. I like to serve these with roasted asparagus, broccoli, or cauliflower and either quinoa or toasted brown rice with saffron." —Florence Gardner, Greenville, S.C.

This was really good, and reasonably fast for a marinated dish. The flavor was surprisingly good for that short of a marinade time. I had boneless leg of lamb left from another dish so I used that instead of the tenderloin. It was delicious!

This is a wonderful special occasion meal. Lamb tenderloin is extremely expensive (at least in my area), but worth every penny.

This was a great recipe! I used Tri-Tip steak instead of the lamb and it turned out great. Our 4 year old daughter loved it too.

This was a great dish, even my young picky eaters ate it up! It was perfectly fresh with all the herbs, and it worked well with beef tenderloin too. I highly recommend marinating for a longer time, at least 2 hours. I served with extra lemons, and grilled veggies. An easy tasty meal.
