  • 1 Moody’s rack of lamb
The Rub
  • 2 t minced garlic
  • 1 T chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 T chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 T chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 T olive oil
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
  1. Allow lamb to come to room temperature, about 1 hour.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 450°F.
  3. Prepare the rub mixture and rub all over the rack of lamb.
  4. Brown the meat in a skillet over high heat to develop a nice sear (I use a cast-iron skillet since it can go from the stovetop to the oven).

  5. Once browned, put it in the oven for about 12 minutes. (Internal temp of 130°F for medium-rare which is best for this cut of meat. I take out at 125°F, tent with foil, and let rest for 10 minutes).

  6. Serve double-cut chops with your favorite sides. A double chop per person should work unless you have really hungry guests! POTATOES DAUPHINOISE is a perfect accompaniment.
