Ingredients

  • 2 racks lamb
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp fresh rosemary chopped
  • 1 lemon juice (1/2) and zest
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Instructions

  1. Let the meat sit out at room temperature for about 30 minutes prior to cooking.
  2. Combine the garlic, mustard, olive oil, rosemary, lemon juice and lemon zest in a small bowl.
  3. Sprinkle the lamb evenly with salt and pepper. Coat the meat with most of the mustard sauce and reserve some for basting during grilling.
  4. Preheat the grill to a medium setting.
  5. Place racks of lamb on the grill but not over direct heat. Allow to cook for 7-10 minutes per side and turn once during cooking. Baste with reserved mustard sauce. [N0te #1: if you want to develop a nice crust and grill marks, resist the urge to keep flipping the meat over constantly during cooking. I know. Just flip once and step away. You can do it :)]
  6. Remove the meat and allow to rest for 10 minutes prior to slicing. [Note #2: If you want tasty lamb, you’ve got to let it sit for 5-10 minutes before you hack into it or else the juices end up on your plate underneath a pile of dry meat. Go gnaw on a handful of macadamia nuts if you are too hungry to wait.]
  7. For medium-rare, I grilled the lamb about 7 minutes per side. Your grill may vary.
