Well, it turns out that it doesn't take an inordinate amount of time, it's fairly simple to prepare and it was delicious! I was so relieved and we both really enjoyed it. It was so tender and flavorful. I found a simple recipe for a roasted rack of lamb but altered it a little. I really feel like the flavor of the lamb is so good that it shouldn't be smothered with other ingredients.
Roasted Rack of Lamb
You will need:
- 1 rack of lamb, trimmed and frenched
- 2 tbsp minced garlic
- 2 tbsp fresh chopped rosemary
- 2 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
- salt and pepper
- 3 tbsp olive oil
Set aside for a few minutes and wrap the ends of the bones with foil to prevent charring. Arrange the rack bone side down in the skillet. Roast the lamb for 12-18 minutes, depending on the degree of doneness you want. I cooked mine for 12 minutes and it was perfectly medium rare. Let it rest for 5-7 minutes, lightly covered, before carving between the ribs.
We had the lamb with rosemary and thyme infused rice and a green salad.
