Grilled Rack of Lamb

Standard

My favorite item on the grill.

Inspired by this.

This recipe is a regular at our place, but this was our first time cooking it on the grill. It looked spectacular and the smokiness from the grill added to the flavor. The lamb chops came from Costco.

Method:

After applying salt and pepper on the lamb, sear it on a hot grill, 2 mins per side.

Then move it to a less hot part of the grill, and cook for 10 to 20 mins per side, depending on how much you want it cooked.

You can use a meat thermometer . For rare 120 degrees and medium is 150 degrees.

Few minutes before taking the rack off the grill, slather Dijon mustard on both sides and coat with herbs. We held the lamb rack with mitts, and rolled it in the fresh herb mixture ( parsley, rosemary and thyme). Cook for another 5 min.

Remove from the grill, rest for about 15 mins .

We had it with a salad and linguini with pesto.
