Glazed Lamb Rack

Sharing below is a recipe taken from my collection (source: Women’s Weekly magazine, February 2012).

Prep: 10 min   Cook: 25 min   Serves: 2


  1. 1 lamb rack (with 8 cutlets)
  2. ½ cup cranberry jam
  3. ½ cup orange juice
  4. ½ tsp dried thyme
  5. salt to taste
  6. 375g cherry tomatoes
  7. 1 tbsp olive oil
  8. steamed baby carrots and green beans to serve


  1. Preheat oven at 200°C. Line a small baking dish with baking paper.
  2. Heat a frying pan over high heat. When hot, sear the lamb rack for 2 – 3 min on all sides without using any oil. Transfer to the baking dish.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine jam and juice. Stir over medium heat until smooth. Lower heat and cook for 3 min until thickened slightly.
  4. Stir in thyme and season to taste with salt.
  5. Brush lamb all over with half the orange glaze. Arrange tomatoes around lamb. Drizzle with oil.
  6. Bake for 15 – 20 min, spooning glaze once over lamb rack.
  7. Remove from oven, cover loosely with foil and set aside for 10 min.
  8. Reheat remaining glaze and cut lamb into serving portions.
  9. Serve with roasted tomatoes, steamed carrots and beans, and drizzled with glaze.
