Roasted rack of lamb is a festive dish at holidays like Christmas, New Years and Easter.The meat is tender and juicy with a little herby crust.
Ingredients for 2 racks-
8 garlic cloves
1 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
4 sprigs fresh rosemary leaves
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
salt and fresh ground better ( I used about 1 tablespoon)
Using a blender,combine all the ingredients.
Rub the marinade all over lamb racks.
Marinade for at least 8-12 hours in the fridge.Bring meat to room temperature before roasting.(about 1 1/2-2 hours)
Heat oven to 500 degrees on broil.
Line a baking sheet with foil.
Place racks on baking sheet and roast for about 15 minutes.
Reduce heat 450 degrees on bake for another 15-20 minutes*
Remove from oven, let rest covered with foil for at least 5 minutes.
Carve and serve right away.
* If you prefer your meat more rare,roasting time will be less.
