Roasted Rack Of Lamb

An easy and delicious Roasted Rack of Lamb!
Jump to Recipe

A rack of lamb is one of the most delicious meat. It’s always very simple and easy to make. This recipe is one of my favorites. A generous amount of garlic coupled with a hint of nostalgia from my curry foods upbringing; this spice truly brings about a very flavorful lamb. I grew up eating curry lamb so to be able to add a bit of curry flavor to a roasted lamb helps me to keep the curry tradition alive (without overpowering the delicacy of a rack of lamb).

I cooked this lamb at a high temperature to create a bit of brownish crust and it was then finished at a lower temperature to cook it through to a medium doneness. You can adjust the cooking time to get your desired doneness. The safe recommended internal temperature of the meat is 145 degrees. I hope you will try this version of roasted rack of lamb and enjoy it as much as we do. Happy cooking!
