Rack of Lamb with Honey

Country: The Falkland Islands
Course: Main
Makes: 2 to 3 servings


  • 1 rack of lamb
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp chopped mint
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • salt and pepper
  • lemon zest (optional)


  1. Brown the ribs in a small amount of oil and transfer to a oven-proof dish.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the honey with the mint and lemon zest, then brush over the rack of lamb. Roast at 350 degrees until an internal thermometer reads 145 degrees (this will give you medium-rare lamb, cook for longer if you like your meat a little more well-done).
  3. Baste with the pan juices before serving.
