Garlic Herb Crusted Roast Lamb

Savory Garlic Herb Crusted Roast Lamb is tender and succulent, perfect for any special occasion. The meat is tender and juicy and the crust gives it such a beautiful flavor. Perfection on a platter!

This juicy decadent dish already has tender potatoes to go with it. So try serving it with a few more veggies and some rolls for the perfect meal. Try it with a side of Sauteed Garlic Asparagus with Bacon, Honey Orange Glazed Carrots or a nice Caesar Salad.

The Best Roast Lamb

Most people think Easter when having lamb, but it’s super easy and is perfect for any Holiday meal. Cooking the Lamb on a bed of potatoes does two things here. First it provides the air to actually circulate better around the roast cooking it more evenly. Secondly it gives you a flavorful perfect side dish. Who could ask for more?1

Cooking lamb may seem intimidating, but it’s no different than cooking any kind of meat. Lamb also seems to be reserved for special occasions but you can have it anytime. There are no rules when it comes to when to eat and when not to eat lamb. So if your craving it, don’t wait! Grab this recipe and cook some up tonight!


I know some people are intimidated by the crown rack of lamb because it looks so fancy, and it is pretty fancy. Perfect for your guests if you’re going to be hosting Easter this year or any kind of get-together. Really, this is good all year long. I’m going to break it down and show you just how easy it can be.

I like to serve mine with my Mediterranean rice pilaf, but you can serve this with anything. We’ll get to that, but first, let’s go over the ingredients.

  • olive oil
  • red wine vinegar
  • dried oregano
  • peeled garlic
  • cumin powder
  • salt
  • pepper
  • fresh Rosemary
  • the star of the show… racks of lamb

I used two racks of lamb, but you can use three if you feel so inclined. Just make sure that you buy them already Frenched. If not, have your butcher do it.

How long can you marinate lamb?

You can make the marinade and marinate your racks up to two days ahead of time. The more you let it sit marinating in these herbs and spices the better! However, these herbs and spices are also very potent. So, you can marinate it last minute, and then bake it off the same day.

I just pour the marinade all over both of my lamb racks. With your hands make sure you get it all around the front and back of the racks. At this point, you can just cover them with some plastic wrap and keep them in your refrigerator for a couple of hours, overnight, or up to two days in advance. Before you’re about to roast them, make sure to take them out and leave at room temperature for a little while. You never want to roast cold meat.

Even though the marinade has some salt in it, you’ll want to make sure that the lamb is seasoned really well. So, just sprinkle some salt on top like you would on top of your eggs in the morning. Then flip it over and do the same thing to the other side.

How do you tie a rack of lamb?

In order to make a crown rack of lamb, you’re going to need a bundt pan. That’s what the lamb racks are going to sit in to help them bake evenly and hold their flavor. You’re also going to need some kitchen twine to tie the racks up. It’s really not that hard. Just connect two end ribs together. Then, cut a piece of kitchen twine about 2 to 3 feet.

Stand the racks up together and start loosely wrapping the twine around the racks. When it starts to hold its shape, wrap it just a little tighter so that it can hold together. Go back up with the twine to connect both sides so that it forms a crown. Then, go ahead and put it in your bundt pan along with all of the remaining juices from the marinade. Cover the bones on top with foil so they don’t burn.

Cook your crown rack of lamb for about 30 to 35 minutes until the internal temperature registers 130 F. This will give you a nice rare lamb. If you like it cooked a little bit more, go ahead and cook it a little bit longer. A temperature of 135-140 F is medium, and that’s the way I like it. Cook it to your liking. Once it comes out of the oven, you’re going to want to cover the whole thing with foil and let it rest for about 10-15 minutes. This allows all the juices to redistribute in the lamb.

I like to make a little dressing to go on top. Take a little bit of balsamic vinegar, a tiny bit of Greek honey, some fresh Rosemary, a little bit of salt, and some cold-pressed Greek extra virgin olive oil and whisk it together. Transfer your rack of lamb to a platter and add all of the pan drippings to the dressing. Then, pour it on top to glaze the lamp and deepen the flavor.

What to serve with a crown rack of lamb?

I would try Mediterranean rice pilaf before you try any other side. However, you could try some spanakorizo (which is my spinach and rice pilaf), roasted vegetables, pasta, mashed potatoes or even roasted potatoes.

Place a layer of your side into a circle serving dish. Put the crown rack of lamb on top of that and carefully cut the strings off. Then, fill the center with the rest of your side. Make sure that whatever you’re feeling it with is nice and warm so it keeps the lamp warm for a while.

Transfer the dressing that you made with balsamic vinegar to another little serving dish. Guests will be able to pour as much as they want on top of their lamb.

The lamb is so moist, tender and juicy. The Rosemary and the garlic perfume the dish perfectly. I think your guests are going to love it!

Lamb Roast Doneness Temperature Chart

Preferred Doneness Degrees F Degrees C
Rare 120-129°F (49-54°C)
Medium Rare 130-134°F (55-57°C)
Medium 135-144°F (58-62°C)
Medium Well 145-154°F (63-67°C)
Well Done 155-164°F (68-73°C)

You may see pictures of crown roasts filled to the brim with savory stuffings or roasted vegetables. While that is a perfectly acceptable way to serve your roast, it is not a great way to cook your roast. The principle is the same as for the reason to not stuff a turkey: it takes longer to cook the stuffing and you will likely overcook the tender meat. So roast those veggies, prepare that couscous, or sauté those Brussels sprouts, but add them on the way to the table, not the way to the oven.

The Perfect Temperature

The internal temps of lamb are the same as beef. The official done temp is 145 degrees, this will result in a medium well done roast. If you&rsquod prefer your lamb a different doneness here is a reference chart.

  • Rare: 115 to 120°F
  • Medium-rare: 120 to 125°F
  • Medium: 130 to 135°F
  • Medium-well: 140 to 145°F
  • Well-done: 150 to 155°F

Smoked American Lamb Crown

1. Begin by laying one of your racks of lamb with the back of the bones facing your. Find the groove at the knuckle of the bone where you would traditionally slice the rack into single cuts. Make a cut in between each bone at that groove going only 1/2 inch deep. When the lamb is done being sliced, it should be able to bend easily because of the slices. Repeat this for both racks of lamb and then set aside.

2. In a blender, mix together the ingredients for the herb paste. Lather your racks of lamb in the herb paste thoroughly. Next, let’s make the racks into a crown. Place the onion on the cutting boards or any other small round object. You don’t have to do this, but it will help keep form better. Surround the object with the two racks of lamb so that the “sliced” side is facing outwards. Bring the racks of lamb next to each other so they are touching, and then tie them together using trussing string. This can be done by tying the bones on top of the meat below. Once it is ready, lather any excess herb paste onto the meat and place the crown into the fridge for 15 minutes.

3. Preheat your grill for indirect cooking at a medium-low temperature around 300F. Add some wood chips or chunks into the grill for additional smoke flavor.

4. Add your lamb crown onto the grill and cook indirectly for 1-1.5 hours until it reaches around 135F internal for medium rare.

5. While the lamb cooks, mix together the lemon parsley yogurt sauce.

6. When done, pull the lamb off and rest for 5 minutes. Slice, serve with the yogurt and enjoy!

Rosemary and Lemon Crown Roast of American Lamb

Serves: 6-8 Preparation Time: 30 minutes Cook Time: 1 hour and 15 minutes


2 8-bone racks of American Lamb (French cut)

Lemon Vinaigrette

1 tablespoon sugar or honey

Spicy Mashed Sweet Potatoes

4 medium to large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into large chunks

Healthy pinch of chili flakes

Tender Greens

1/2 cup shaved or shredded Parmesan


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (400, if using convection). Lay the racks on a cutting board with the bones pointing toward you, positioned so that it looks like one continuous rack. Face the fat cap UP. Where the two racks meet, tie the center bones together using one end of the twine. Now stand the racks up, bones pointing upward. Form the racks into a circle and string the butchers twine across the center of the circle to tie the opposite two bones together. Wrap the remaining length of twine, without cutting it, around the eye of the lamb meat 3 times, tightly. Now, the two racks should resemble a crown. Place the crown into a cast iron pan. Season the roast generously with kosher salt and pepper. Add the rosemary, sliced lemon, and shallots to the pan.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the lemon vinaigrette. Using 1/4 of the dressing, bathe the lamb. Place the pan into your hot oven 60-75 minutes. You’ll roast the lamb until the internal temp reaches 145 degrees F.

While the lamb roasts, bring the sweet potatoes and 2-3 quarts of salted water to a boil. Boil until tender, roughly 30 minutes. In a saucepan, melt the butter and roast the spices in it. Add the cooked sweet potatoes, cream, and Parmesan, then smash the potatoes.

Once the lamb is cooked to your desired temperature, remove from the oven to rest 5-10 minutes. Arrange the salad greens on a platter and dress with the vinaigrette. To serve the lamb, cut the butchers twine off the roast and slice the roast into chops. Serve with the salad and spicy sweet potatoes. Use the leftover vinaigrette as a dipping sauce.
