I'm sorry but anyone who claims this is the worst recipe ever made must not know how to cook. The flavours are classic combinations for lamb roast. To the review from Linda and her husband you must have made a mistake or used poor quality ingredients. I have been cooking this recipe and using the marinade for years and it works every time. I love it and others obviously love it too from the other reviews.
