About the Recipe
This recipe inspiration came from a beautiful rack of lamb that was on sale at Costco. I saw it and just couldn’t pass it up!
I wanted delicious garlic and herb flavors on this rack of lamb, so I decided that marinating it would lock in those flavors!
Once you combine your marinate ingredients, add in your rack of lamb and let marinate for one hour or at least one day.
Once it’s marinated, cook for at least 6 minutes with the meat side down. Then, flip and let the other side cook for 3 minutes. Finally, flip once more and turn heat to very low, and let lamb sit for at least 20 minutes.
The end result is a delicious and juicy rack of lamb that is sure to impress your friends and family!
