Welcome to the Family Recipes

Lamb Marinade

1 1/2 cups of salad oil
3/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce
2 Tbsp. dry mustard  (I never use this much)
2 1/4  tsps salt  (way too much)
1 Tbsp black pepper  (I don't use this much either)
1/2 cup wine vinegar
1 1/2 tsps. dried parsley flakes
2 crushed garlic cloves (I use powdered garlic)
1/3 cup of lemon juice

Combine all ingredients in a bowl until blended and store in quart 
container, preferably glass.  (mayo jar).  Since you are not making 
shish-kabobs with lamb I would suggest not soaking the steaks but 
just brushing some on them early in the day.  Both sides use glass 
pan not metal, like a cake pan.

The bread crumbs hold the juices in keeping the meat tender. This adds a
unique twist to the same old steak.  Sure to be a family favorite.  For
Debbie, squash, eggplant, and a whole host of other vegetables can be
substituted for the meat. Serve with salad, vegetables, and wine (RED).
