For the Lamb Rack:

  • 2 New Zealand grass-fed lamb racks (Tip: look for the Taste Pure Nature Logo)
  • 1/4 cup rosemary, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • 4 tablespoons avocado oil, divided
  • 2 teaspoons salt

For the Tzatziki Sauce:

  • 1 medium cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup full fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, grated or minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


For Lamb Rack:

  • 1. In a large bowl, mix rosemary, minced garlic and 3 tablespoons avocado oil. Add lamb racks to the bowl and coat with herb and garlic mixture. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for 2-3 hours.
  • 2. Remove lamb racks from the refrigerator and bring to room temperature for 1 hour. Season the lamb racks with salt.
  • 3. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • 4. In an oven safe pan, heat 1 tablespoon avocado oil to medium-high heat on the stove.
  • 5. Place the lamb racks fat side down and sear for 3-4 minutes. Flip the lamb racks over and transfer to the oven. Roast for 15-17 minutes.
  • 6. Remove from oven and let rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing.

For Tzatziki Sauce:

  • 7. While the lamb racks rest, make the tzatziki sauce by placing the thinly sliced cucumber in a cheesecloth or dish towel and squeeze to remove as much liquid as possible.
  • 8. In a small bowl, combine cucumber, Greek yogurt, olive oil, garlic, and salt.

To Serve:

  • 9. Slice the lamb racks into individual chops and sprinkle with salt. Serve with tzatziki sauce on the side.
