Ingredients You'll Need:

  • 1 rack of lamb (about 2 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • RA Seasonings GREEK Seasoning
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Instructions for a Culinary Masterpiece:

  1. Preheat Your Oven: Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). This ensures even cooking and a perfectly tender lamb.
  2. Prepare the Rack of Lamb: Pat the rack of lamb dry with paper towels. Remove any excess fat, but leave a thin layer for flavor.
  3. Season the Lamb: Generously rub RA Seasonings GREEK onto the entire rack of lamb, ensuring all sides are evenly coated.
  4. Sear the Lamb: Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the rack of lamb for 2-3 minutes per side, developing a beautiful golden crust.
  5. Roast to Perfection: Transfer the seared lamb to a roasting pan. Roast for 20-25 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 145°F (63°C) for medium-rare.
  6. Rest and Slice: Remove the lamb from the oven and let it rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing. This allows the juices to redistribute, resulting in a more tender and flavorful cut.
  7. Prepare the Greek Vinaigrette: While the lamb rests, whisk together the red wine vinegar, lemon juice, and chopped parsley in a small bowl. This tangy vinaigrette will complement the rich flavor of the lamb perfectly.
  8. Assemble and Serve: Arrange the sliced lamb on a platter. Drizzle the Greek vinaigrette over the lamb, and serve immediately.

Tips for a Delicious Experience:

  • Don't Overcook: Lamb is best enjoyed medium-rare, allowing for a tender and juicy texture. Overcooking will result in a dry and tough cut.
  • Fresh Herbs: If possible, use fresh herbs for the rub and vinaigrette. Their vibrant flavors will elevate the dish to new heights.
  • Accompaniments: Serve the Greek-seasoned rack of lamb with roasted vegetables, couscous, or a simple Greek salad for a well-balanced meal.

This recipe is a testament to the beauty of simplicity and the power of fresh ingredients. It is a dish that will impress your guests and leave them craving for more. So, gather your ingredients and embark on a culinary journey to Greece with this delectable Greek seasoned rack of lamb recipe.
