Greek Lemon Lamb Rack

Yield 3 servings


  • 1 (1 1/2- to 2 1/2-pound) lamb rib roast, trimmed
  • 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1 teaspoon dried mint flakes
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts

How to Make It

  1. Make 1-inch-deep cuts in lamb, and insert garlic slices. Place lamb in a shallow roasting pan.

  2. Bake at 325° for 1 hour.

  3. Stir together honey and next 3 ingredients in a small saucepan; cook over low heat until bubbly, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, and stir in lemon rind, mint, and walnuts.

  4. Spoon lemon glaze over lamb; bake 30 more minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 155° or to desired degree of doneness, basting occasionally with glaze. Serve lamb immediately.
