Spicy Buffalo-Style Rack of American Lamb with Crunchy Celery and Blue Cheese Salad

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds, or 2 (4 to 5-bone) racks of American Lamb
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced 

Crunchy Celery and Blue Cheese Salad

  • 2 cups thinly sliced celery
  • 1/2 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Allow lamb to come to room temperature, roughly 1 hour.

Season lamb on both sides with salt and pepper; place on a parchment or foil-lined baking sheet.

In a bowl or pan, mix melted butter, hot sauce, parsley, pepper and garlic. Spoon half the prepared buffalo sauce over the lamb; roast at 475° for 12 to 16 minutes. For the final 2 minutes of cooking, switch oven to broil to crisp the top of the lamb. (For smaller chops, roast 12 minutes plus 2 minutes under the broiler). This will yield a medium-rare lamb. Allow lamb to rest 5 to 10 minutes before slicing. 

For the Crunchy Celery and Blue Cheese Salad: In a large bowl, mix together celery, parsley, blue cheese, oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Best served immediately.

  1. This recipe is so delicious and easy to make with ingredients you probably already have at home. The hot sauce gives it that added taste if you like that kind of kick. Lamb is always good with all kinds of sauces or even by itself with just some garlic salt and garlic powder. We just love eating lamb. Enjoy!
