Herb Grilled Rack of Lamb

Herb Grilled Rack of Lamb created by Smoky Okie

Quick and easy yet elegant grilled main dish. Herb measurements are approximate, and any of the savory , or mint family of herbs may be used. If you use fresh herbs, you can't go wrong. The only sin is to not use enough. If fresh herbs aren't available, you may substitute dried herbs, but reduce the quantities to 2-3 tsp. each. Frenched Lamb racks are available in vac packs most everywhere. If not, ask your butcher to french them for you.

    Made this for Easter and it was a success. Adjusted cooking time for larger racks of lamb. We decided that omitting the mint next time would be more to our taste. Thanks again for a keeper!
