30 Minutes to Amazing Lamb!

I don’t know about you, but prepping dinner can either be a really good stress release, or it can be incredibly stressful. In my experience, I’ve found that the fewer ingredients involved, and the shorter the prep time, the more fun I have preparing my meals and the more I inevitably enjoy them. On that note, I want to share a quick and easy lamb recipe with all of you!


  • French Rack of Lamb ( I got mine at Trader Joe’s)
  • Seasonings (I used sea salt and South American Smoke – a Trader Joe’s spice)
  • 2 tbsp Cooking Fat (I used duck fat, but coconut oil, lard, or butter are fine choices as well)
  1. Preheat oven to 425 Fahrenheit
  2. Place your cooking fat into a cast iron skillet on the stove and let heat up. In the meantime, season your lamb with salt/pepper/spices…whatever you like on both sides.
  3. Once skillet is heated and meat is seasoned, place the lamb, meat side down, on the skillet to sear
  4. After 3-5 minutes, flip over and sear for another 2-3 minutes. Both sides should look browned
  5. Once seared, place the cast iron skillet into the pre-heated oven and roast for 12-15 minutes. The time only depends on how you like your meat cooked. I personally am a fan of medium rare, so I took mine out in about 12 minutes. If you have a meat thermometer, when the meat temp reaches 125F, that’s medium rare.
  6. Remove the meat from the oven, cover with a foil tent and let the meat rest for about 10 minutes. That’s also the perfect time to get your vegetables sautéed!
  7. Cut the rack into 2 bone pieces
  8. Serve along side vegetables
