The lamb racks are coated with a blend of fresh herbs and then roasted to perfection. It's so tender, juicy and flavourful. Served alongside a vibrant mint chimichurri, absolutely perfect for a family Sunday dinner or an easy main for entertaining. Roast the lamb for about 15 minutes for very pink meat, 20 minutes for medium rare, and 25 minutes for medium/well-done and 30 minutes for well done.

Mint Chimichurri
  • 30 g Flat parsley
  • 15 g Oregano leaves
  • 1 tsp Sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Black pepper
  • 4 Garlic cloves
  • 60 ml Olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 Lamb racks (about 1.1kg)
  • 30 g Flat parsley, minced
  • 15 g Mint leaves, minced
  • 1 Shallot, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1/2 tbsp Oregano leaves, chopped
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 100 ml Olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Red wine vinegar
  • 1 Red chilli pepper, deseeded and minced
  1. Place the parsley, oregano, sea salt, cayenne, black pepper, garlic, and olive oil in your food processor and blend until combined. You can also finely chop everything by hand.
  2. Spread the Dijon mustard evenly over the meat on both sides of the racks of lamb. Rub a little of the herb mix over the backside of the lamb then place the racks, backside down, on a large roasting tin. Press the remaining herb mix onto the meaty part of the lamb. Set aside at room temperature for an hour or overnight in the fridge.
  3. While the lamb is marinating, prepare the mint chimichurri. Stir all the chimichurri ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl. Set aside.
  4. Preheat your oven to 220C/450F. When your oven is ready and hot, put the lamb inside. Roast for about 15 minutes for very pink meat, 20 minutes for medium rare, and 25 minutes for medium/well-done and 30 minutes for well done.
  5. Transfer the lamb to a warmed plate, cover loosely with foil, and allow to rest in a warm place for about 10 minutes before carving. Carve racks in between rib bones and serve on warmed plates with chimichurri sauce.

The mint chimichurri with the spice of chili has to take the lamb chops over the top taste wise.

It has been years since I have had lamb. My mother sometimes made it at Easter, and I don't think I have had any since.

Grace 2/6/24 08:33

Estupendo Angie. Siguiendo la tradición familiar, cada 1 de año no puede faltar un buen plato de cordero en la mesa. La preparación es muy semejante a ésta. Riquísimo. Gracias Angie.

Lamb is disgracefully expensive here in Ontario; I say disgracefully because we actually farm lamb in our province! Ontario lamb is even more expensive than New Zealand or Australian lamb! But this recipe looks like a winner so I’ll save my pennies to buy a gorgeous rack of lamb.

Balvinder 2/6/24 16:23

It has a been a long time since I have made lamb or even had it. This absolutely looks so delicious.
