Lamb in Apple Marinade Recipe

I love lamb and am always looking out for new recipes to use it in.
This recipe was given to me by a lady who, with her husband, were sheep farmers. They obviously had an abundance of lamb to use so she used to create lots of different ways to serve it.
I have used this recipe with lamb as well as with pork and I have to say they both taste equally as good using this recipe.


1 1/2 kg lamb chops (can use chump or loin)
1 small brown onion - peeled and finely chopped
1 small piece of fresh ginger - peeled and finely chopped
1 cup fresh apple juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 cup good oil
1 tablespoon cornflour
sea salt and cracked black pepper to taste


Combine all the marinade ingredients apart from cornflour, together in a large jug or bowl.
Arrange chops in a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over them and place in the refrigerator for several hours, turning occasionally.
Remove from the marinade and cook on a hot barbecue or grill for several minutes on each side. Do not overcook them.
Blend the cornflour with marinade and stir over a low heat until it thickens. Simmer for a few minutes then either pour over chops or serve on the side in a small jug.
Serve with either a tossed salad or with some nice coloured vegetables, such as broccoli, carrots and a jacket potato or french fries.
