Garlic-Studded Rosemary Roast Rack of Lamb

Garlic-Studded Rosemary Roast Rack of Lamb

Just five ingredients add up to an entrée with Italian flair.

  • Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 2 chops)


  • 3 none (1 1/2-pound) French-cut racks of lamb (8 ribs each)
  • none Cooking spray
  • 6 none garlic cloves, thinly sliced (48 slices)
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


1. Place lamb, meat side down, on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Cut a 1-inch-deep slit between each rib on the underside of each rack; stuff 2 garlic slices into each slit. Turn lamb, meat side up; coat with cooking spray. Sprinkle with pepper and rosemary, pressing gently to adhere. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 8 hours or overnight.

2. Preheat oven to 450°.

3. Sprinkle lamb evenly with salt. Bake at 450° for 20 minutes or until a thermometer registers 145° (medium-rare) to 160° (medium). Cover with foil; let stand 10 minutes before slicing each rack into 8 pieces.
