  8. Every 20 minutes or so, baste with reserved marinade.
  9. Serve with steamed or roasted baby potatoes or a risotto.


As you can see in the photos, I stripped some of the thyme and rosemary and left whole sprigs of the fresh herbs as well. I was in a hurry. 🙂 I would advise taking a couple extra minutes to strip the fresh herbs to remove the stems.
