Tender, oven-roasted rack of lamb flavored with rosemary, fresh lemon juice and garlic is perfect for entertainment and so easy to prepare!

  • 4th Cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 2 Saddle of lamb, French (2 pounds each, 8 ribs each)
  • 1/4 lemon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, taste
  • Season the saddle of lamb with lemon juice and season with salt and pepper on both sides.

  • Rub the garlic over it and sprinkle with rosemary.

  • Place the fat side of the rack on a large foil-lined baking sheet and let sit for 1 hour.

  • Preheat the oven to 450 ° F.

  • Roast the lamb in the top third of the oven for about 25 minutes for medium-rare meats, or until a thermometer hits 130F (or longer if you like your cooked medium or medium-sized meat). Simply run the tip of the thermometer through the side of the chops into the thickest part of the meat, being careful not to touch the bone (which is hotter than the meat that surrounds it).

  • When that point hits 130 ° F, it's done. The temperature continues to rise another 5 degrees when the lamb rests.

  • Transfer the rack of lamb to a cutting board and let sit in the tent for 10 minutes with foil.

  • Carve the lamb between the ribs and transfer to plates.

  • Serve immediately. Cut off fat before eating *.

* The diet is based on sliced ​​lamb. When cooking the entire rack, I found it best to cut the fat before eating, not before frying.
