What Is A Rack of Lamb?

A rack of lamb is a cut of meat that includes the rib bones and associated meat of a lamb. It is typically roasted and can be served as an entree or main course.

Racks of lamb are generally cut into individual chops, which are then cooked as desired. The chops can be grilled, roasted, pan-fried, or even braised. When cooked properly, a rack of lamb can be a very tender and flavorful dish.

When purchasing a rack of lamb, look for one that has evenly sized chops and is well-marbled with fat. This will ensure that the lamb is juicy and flavorful when cooked.

Racks of lamb are popular dishes in restaurants, but they can be intimidating to cook at home. This guide will show you how to prepare a rack of lamb for your next dinner party.

This makes for a great dinner on any special occasion, from Valentine’s Day, Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or even New Year’s Eve,…

And, of course, your air fryer is the perfect place to make this delicious entree!

Sauces That Go With Lamb

Are you a lamb lover? Do you want to experiment with some new sauce ideas with your lamb dishes? My favorites include:

  • Mint Jelly
  • Chimichurri Sauce
  • Dill Dipping Sauce
  • Greek.Tzatziki Sauce


Remember to let the lamb rest after cooking it so that the liquids can collect in the center, ensuring that every person receives a juicy, delicate portion.

The lamb simply needs to rest for 5 to 10 minutes.

FAQs about Air Fryer Rack of Lamb

Can you put a rack in an air fryer?

Yes, you can stack food in an air fryer. However, avoid stacking foods directly on top of one another. Instead, use racks to help create a space between your food’s layers. This allows hot air to circulate and reach the food, resulting in an evenly cooked, crispy result.

What should I Season lamb with?

Because lamb chops have such a powerful flavor, they can withstand strong, earthy herbs and spices. Mint, sage, or chopped oregano are some herbs that work well. Coriander, cumin, garlic, onion, cayenne, chili powder, mustard powder, or paprika are some spices that will offer a good punch.

Lamb and beef have similar calories, total fat, protein, vitamin, and mineral content—but lamb (especially grass-fed lamb) is the winner when it comes to omega-3 fat content.
