Garlic Rack of Lamb

Lamb isn’t just for Easter.  I prepare lamb often because it is so easy to make and always a big hit. 



15 Peeled Garlic Cloves

1/4 Cup Rosemary Leaves

1/2 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes

3 Tablespoons Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice

1/4 Cup Olive Oil

1/4 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/4 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

1 Large Rack of Lamb


Preheat your oven to 450° F.  In a blender or a food processor combine the garlic, rosemary, red pepper flakes, lemon juice and olive oil.  Pulse until the garlic is finely chopped.  Season the lamb with the salt and pepper.  Rub the garlic mixture on both sides of the lamb.  Make sure that all of the meat is covered.  Put the lamb, fat side up, on a large baking sheet.  Let stand of 1 hour.  Place the lamb in the top portion of your oven and roast for 15 minutes.  Open the oven door and turn the baking sheet and roast for another 10 minutes.  Your lamb should come out medium rare.  If you want your lamb rare then roast for less time.  Remove from the oven and transfer to a carving board.  Let stand for 10 minutes.  Carve the rack in between the ribs and serve immediately.  Serves 4
