Roasted Rack of Lamb Dijon Recipe


  • 2 lamb racks, 8 bones each
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp Metropolitan Market Olive Oil
  • 6 tsp minced garlic, minced
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves removed and chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Mix together mustard, olive oil, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper. Rub all over the racks of lamb. Place racks on an oiled roasting pan with the curved or ‘fatty’ side up. Roast (step 2) or cover and refrigerate for a few hours, or up to overnight.
  2. Adjust oven rack to center position to make room for the lamb. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  3. Place lamb in middle of oven and roast for about 12 to 15 minutes per pound (20 to 30 minutes total time) or until instant-read thermometer placed in the thickest part of the meat, not touching the bone, registers 130°F.
  4. Remove lamb from oven, cover loosely with foil and set aside for 15 minutes. This will make the lamb juicier.
  5. To serve, cut racks between each bone into chops and serve at once.
