Simple, Delicious, Rack of Lamb!


I don't know about you, but I love quality time with my kids.  They're all grown now, but when one of the kids says, "Mom, I need you!" it fills my heart, even though what they actually said was, "Mom, I really need to do laundry!"  My youngest (21 years) came over to do laundry tonight and we ended up making this amazing Lamb Rack, just because I didn't feel like going out, and this is what was in the fridge/freezer.  I buy my lamb racks from Costco, because they're good quality and a good value for the buck.

Ingredients

1 Lamb Rack of Ribs
Olive Oil
Fresh Rosemary (leaves, chopped finely, I used about 4 sprigs of fresh)
Minced Garlic
Salt & Pepper

 Place the Lamb Rack in a large ziplock bag with some heavy splashes of Olive Oil (enough to coat all of the ribs), then sprinkle with the Rosemary, Garlic, Salt & Pepper.

Smoosh the olive oil and herbs all around the meat part of the rack, and let sit for 1 hour or more.  The longer the better.

Heat your grill on high heat (mine was about 450 degrees F) so the grill is hot.  Lay the rack (meat side down) on the hottest part of the grill that is off the flames for good grill marks.  Let grill for about 10 minutes, then turn over and place on indirect heat  (keeping your grill at about 425 to 450 F) for another 20 minutes, or until the interior of the rack registers 130 on a digital meat thermometer.

Alternatively , you could do these in the oven at 425 degrees F, should still be about 20 - 30 minutes, until the meat thermometer registers 130.

Remove from heat, and rest for about 10 minutes.

Slice the ribs between the bones, and serve.  We had these with some luscious Yukon Gold Potatoes with butter and sour cream and it was delicious!
