Hello Lamb, You Are Lambtastic

Holy Moly. My son loved this so much that he ate two-thirds of it while hubby and I savored our meager rations. We purchase the “Frenched” rack of lamb at Trader Joe’s, and then the prep and cooking is incredibly simple. This was easily a good meal for guests or just a weeknight. My husband thought it was amazing without even putting more sauce over the top at the end, but my son and I were all about pouring the amazingness over the cooked meat after it was sliced and on the plates.

Clearly, I like medium-rare lamb, so simply adjust your goal temp if you like it cooked longer.

The sauce is actually from my brother-in-law’s chicken recipe, but I think it would get rave reviews with any protein pairing.



  • 1 “frenched” rack of lamb
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 Tbsp fresh chopped rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/3 cup avocado oil


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees

Season the lamb with salt and pepper.

Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl, whisking in the avocado oil last.

Bake for approximately 20-30 minutes, checking temperature and basting with sauce every 5 minutes. Cook to 145 degrees for medium-rare.

Optional: Pour remaining sauce over the top of the lamb slices before serving.
