Perfectly seasoned lamb and cooked to perfection. Juicy, tender meat covered in a herb crust is the perfect dish for entertaining! The herbs and spices compliment the lamb, and are sure not to overpower it. This dish is best served with your favourite type of potato and green beans sautéed with garlic and sliced almonds!
- 1 rack of lamb (about 8 chops)
- 4 cloves of garlic – minced
- 2 sprigs rosemary – finely chopped
- 1 tsp fresh thyme – finely chopped
- 2 tbsp olive oil or melted butter
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp fresh black pepper
Step 1: Place the lamb on a plate and rub rosemary, thyme, garlic, salt and pepper all over the lamb. Drizzle over the olive oil until fully coated and place the lamb in a large ziplock bag. Squeeze out as much air as possible and place in the fridge over night
Step 2: Before cooking time, remove from the fridge 2 hours before so the lamb is room temperature
Step 3: Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Step 4: Remove lamb from ziplock bag and place fat side up. Score the fat with a sharp knife and wrap the rib bones with foil to avoid burning while cooking.
Step 5: Cook lamb for 10 minutes at 450 degrees, then lower the temperature of the oven to 300 degrees and cook for an additional 15-20 minutes – or when the internal temperature reaches 135 degrees (for medium rare)
Step 6: Remove the lamb from the oven, cover with foil and let rest for 15 minutes. Slice the lamb between the bones, and serve immediately!
