Roasting a Rack of Lamb

Part 3 in a series

One of the easiest things to do is to roast a lamb rack. You can rub it with just about anything you want the "trick" being more the heat level and cooking time. In this video we are using a higher heat to give more of a crust, and shorter cooking time for rare to medium rare. If there are some at the party who'd prefer it more well done, I prefer to cook as shown, then to cut those that want it more well done it into chops and stick them back in the oven. That way they a still moist and tender but cooked all the way through.


A whole lamb rack and in this video we just rub it with Aioli , Herbs de Provence , and Rick's Chef Salt and bake it.

To Make:

Trim the rack as shown, heat your oven to 450° to 500°, rub with your favorite (see video below for one of ours) and bake until the rack is about 120° or less in the center for rare to medium rare (about 15 to 20 minutes.)

End Note

A trimmed lamb rack is extremely versitile!
