This recipe was awesome. We made it for Valentine's Dinner last night and as my husband and I have made some really good meals in the past but this was one we would rank it as one of the better ones. The lamb was juicy and flavourable... we did make one change to the recipe and used Herbes de Provence instead of Thyme as we were serving this with Wild Mushroom Rissoto which called for thyme as well. One top of it all, it was super simple to make and is definately a dish I would consider making for special meals

Fantastic flavor. Since I prefer to use an outdoor grill instead of an oven, I cooked it on indirect for 20 minutes. Highly recommend.

Mine was excellent, but after some changes. My husband would eat 4 ribs by himself, so I doubled the all the ingredients except the lemon. I found that it was a little on the tart side, so I added some honey. I loved the intense thyme, mustard flavor. I would do this recipe again...with the changes!
