For 4 servings:
- 7+ bone rack of lamb, trimmed and Frenched
- 2 Tbl olive oil
- 2+ Tbl Ras el Hanout
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F Move oven rack to the center position. Brush lamb with olive oil. Spread Ras el Hanout liberally over the lamb. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large heavy oven proof skillet over high heat. Sear rack of lamb for 1 to 2 minutes on all sides. Set aside for a few minutes. Cover the ends of the bones with foil to prevent charring. Arrange the rack bone side down in the skillet. Roast the lamb in preheated oven for 12 to 18 minutes, depending on the degree of doneness you want. With a meat thermometer, take a reading in the center of the meat after 10 to 12 minutes and remove the meat, or let it cook longer, to your taste. Let it rest for 5 to 7 minutes, loosely covered, before carving between the ribs.
