Easy Roasted Rack of Lamb

Cook Time30 mins


  • 1 rack of lamb or more if you need to, just increase the herbs & oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 cloves garlic minced
  • 6 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil


  • Massage the rack of lamb with the olive oil & garlic - place into a resealable plastic bag to marinade. Place 3 sprigs of the rosemary under the rack of lamb & 3 on top of the rack of lamb. Marinate for at least 2 hours or up to 8 hours in the fridge. Bring to room temperature before cooking.
  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Place the rack of lamb in a cast iron skillet, foil lined baking sheet, or roasting pan. Lay the 3 rosemary sprigs under the roast & 3 on the roast, like you did when marinating (use the same ones). Season the rack of lamb with salt & pepper. Roast for 20-30 minutes, depending on how done your like your lamb. The internal temperature should reach 130-140 for medium rare.
  • Turn the oven up to broil for a couple minutes to put a char on the outside if you desire. Remove from the oven & let rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
