  • 2 racks of lamb, trimmed and frenched
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1 cup beef or chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Season the racks of lamb with salt and pepper, to taste.

  4. Place the lamb on the grill and cook for 6-8 minutes on each side, or until it reaches your desired level of doneness.

  7. Serve the grilled racks of lamb with the red wine sauce on the side.

Tips for the Perfect Rack of Lamb:

  • If you prefer a crust on your lamb, press breadcrumbs or chopped nuts onto the lamb before grilling.
  • Make sure to rest the lamb for at least 5 minutes before slicing, to allow the juices to redistribute.
  • If you prefer a thicker sauce, whisk in a cornstarch slurry at the end of cooking to thicken the sauce.
