How to make it

  • Brown lamb:
  • Heat a dry 12-inch heavy skillet over high heat until hot, at least 2 minutes. Meanwhile, pat lamb dry and rub meat all over with salt and pepper. Add oil to hot skillet, then brown racks, in 2 batches if necessary, on all sides (not ends), about 10 minutes per batch.
  • Transfer racks to a small (13- by 9-inch) roasting pan. See Photo
  • *************
  • Coat and roast lamb:
  • Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Stir together garlic, herbs, salt, pepper, and oil. Coat meaty parts of lamb with herb mixture, pressing to help adhere. Roast 15 minutes, then cover lamb loosely with foil and roast until thermometer inserted diagonally into center of meat registers 120°F, 5 to 10 minutes more. Let stand, covered, 10 minutes. (Internal temperature will rise to 125 to 130°F for medium-rare while lamb stands.)
  • *************
  • Cut each rack into 4 double chops.
  • *************
  • I served it with roasted beets (washed and baked in the oven at 350 for one hour).

    Great recipe. This goes on the list of dishes to do. Only way to get "new garlic" here will be to grow some. Back to the garden. Thanks for the post. RJ
