First, before I start talking about this recipe, I’d like to let you all know that I write these articles sometimes a month in advance. I had no idea what the effects of the Coronavirus would be here in Boston, much less the rest of the world. I did experience going to the grocery store and the meat case being absolutely empty. It can be scary, but please know that this won’t last forever, and perhaps this lamb recipe is something you can bookmark and come back to later when things have calmed down. Think of it as something to look forward to! I wish you all peace during this difficult time and excellent health. Please make sure to wash your hands and avoid situations that might put you at risk. Remember, this too shall pass.
I think it’s important to learn how to cook things that are intimidating. Not only will it build confidence in the kitchen, but it will also save you lots of money cooking at home rather than paying at a restaurant. I LOVE the taste of lamb, but I don’t always love the cost it can reach when I go out to eat it, because then I have to pay for the wine, and then tip and tax, and it can really add up.
This is a really easy lamb recipe. You can buy a rack which can make four servings with a serving being two chops. This also means that unlike a restaurant where you’re paying for one meal, you’re actually getting four servings this way! I also suggest that you make a side of mashed potatoes and a veggie to go along with it.

- A gallon-sized ziplock bag or dish that will allow you to marinate the lamb laying flat and even
- One rack of lamb (this should be 2lbs and have 8 lamb chops. (each serving size is 2 chops each)
- Kosher salt for seasoning
- Pepper to taste
- 1 Tbsp minced garlic
- 2 Tsp chopped rosemary
- 2 Tsp chopped Thyme
- 1/2 Tsp chopped Parsley
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1.) If you are buying an entire rack of lamb, ask your butcher if they are able to french the lamb for you. If they are not willing this VIDEO will show you how to do it.
