Honey Roasted Rack of Lamb
What You Need
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoon. soy sauce
2 tablespoons crushed garlic
Combine ingredients in a small bowl and use for basting. Recipe covers up to one medium 8-rib lamb rack.
Preheat oven to 475º. Place rack in heavy skillet and sear over high heat for 3 minutes per side. Season with salt and pepper or baste. Place rack, fat side up, in a roasting pan and roast in the middle of the oven for 14-16 minutes for medium-rare. Transfer racks to a warm plate and let rest for 10 minutes before serving.
The firmer the feel of the meat, the more well-done it is. Just press the lamb — when it has a springy but firm texture and is moderately juicy, the lamb is done.
