Herb Crusted Lamb Rib Rack

  • Rating:


1 large rosemary sprig, leaves removed and finely chopped
5 thyme sprigs, leaves removed and finely chopped
1 large handful of parsley leaves, finely chopped
3-4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
3 tbsp olive oil
2 lamb rib racks


Mix the herbs together with the garlic, salt, pepper and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Take one tablespoon of the mixture and place in a separate bowl with the remaining tablespoon of olive oil, then set this aside for basting.

Rub the lamb racks with the large amount of herb mixture, then place in a roasting pan, on a rack, cover with aluminum foil and roast at 325 F for 1 1/2 hours.  Remove the aluminum foil, increase the oven temperature to 425 F, continue to roast for another 30 minutes, basting occasionally with the reserved olive oil.
