    Anyone ever use simon and garfunkel on lamb?

    Ive got a lamb rack i was going to cook for xmas and was wondering if anyone had tested the flavor profile of S&G with lamb?

    I have not. This is my go to rub for Lamb. The ingredient include Coarse sea salt, garlic, lemon peel, onion, black pepper, fennel, rosemary, Mediterranean thyme, sage, basil, parsley, Greek oregano, spearmint, marjoram. It is outstanding.

      I do something very similar (and will be doing on lamb this week as well) which is to use your basic recipe but instead of sourcing and mixing the fennel, rosemary, thyme, sage, basil and mint try substituting Herbs de Provence. It's a good shortcut to the same results

      Thanks for the tip Troutman! I have Herbs de Provence and sadly just don't know what to use it for unless it is specifically called for in a recipe. I has very surprised to see chef Jean-Pierre use Herbs de Provence on prime rib in a recent video. I always associated it with Poultry & Foul.

    No, but Mint Jelly is very good with lamb.

      I grew up with a fresh mint and vinegar concoction my mom made with our lamb roast (not a jelly). If my memory serves correct it wasn't half bad but it's more than 35 years ago so who knows ☺ Donw
      I am not at all a fan of mint jelly.

      holehogg Mint sauce is good especially with mutton and goat. The tartness from the vinegar balances out well with the mint. I’m sure it would be good with lamb too. Jelly is another story though.

    Yes, I use it fairly regularly on lamb. Great stuff. It is great, and you will love it. Go a little heavier on the Rosemary, I always do anyway.

      Good to hear. I thought it should work but the last thing you want to do is experiment for the first time and ruin xmas dinner, lol.

      Spinaker - were you the one who posted that here awhile back? I saw the question and was racking (pun intended) my brain trying to remember who it was. The review was really favorable.

      It may have been me, honestly, I can't really remember. But I will say, it was very good! So how is that for an OFFICIALl favorable review? tbob4

    I do use on chops before grilling over live fire don't care for it on chicken myself.
    I recommended S&G to a friend who spits whole lamb as a catering sideline. It's now his go to rub. Think he made a few adjustments on some of the ingredient measurements.

      We're doing a rack of lamb as well GG. What are you pairing with yours? I'm still up in the air, tired of the same old same old.

        Troutman I always go balls to the wall for xmas because its rare we get the (small) family together at this point. Most of the time its kids bdays etc and we end up getting pizza or catered. I love it and it sucks because i end up spending 80% of the day and the prior day in the kitchen prepping and cooking.

        As for making you feel bad...bah! These soups and stews youve been posting...if you aint doing it up for xmas you are just slacking off!

        Yea well you got me at creamed spinach. I'm actually keeping it simple this year, there's only 3 of us for dinner so no massive meal. No massive meal means less massive time in the kitchen !!!!

      I have used the S&G on lamb and it was great, if following the recipe directly I prefer the dolly's Lamb rub, I suspect a bit of Bay Leaf added to the S&G would be a nice addition and possible some extra Rosemary (I love Rosemary though)

        I thought S&G had a ton of bay leaves as I recall?

        Bay leaf crushed versus ground, not sure how it would impact, maybe no difference?
