Lamb Tenderloin w Maxim Potatoes

This was my first time cooking with a lamb tenderloin. I have done beef and pork but never lamb. The lamb is very small and delicate. I decided to travel to Greece on this one but with a couple of twists (yeah, what else is new). So we start with a Greek yogurt marinade with thyme, oregano, and rosemary. Then we add a tomato and sour cream sauce with some Greek spices. We next add some maxim potatoes, and we have a dinner that will take you to old Greek-town. I hope you like it.
