ARMENIAN - ITALIAN LAMB CHOPS
COOKBOOK: Better Homes & Gardens - BBQ cookbook
I'm not sure how this can be both Armenian and Italian but someone thought it could fall into the same category. Armenians love their lamb and love their BBQs. Their flavours are richer than Italian cooking and maybe the introduction of cumin in this recipe pushed it to earn this name.
I don't know, but what I do know is that it was delicious!
