Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 1 (1- to 11/2-pound) rack of lamb
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 3/4 cup crushed crispy fried onions


  • Grill Grate
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Small Bowl
  • Whisk
  • Silicone-Tipped Tongs
  • Step 1

    Insert the Grill Grate and close the hood. Select GRILL, set the temperature to HIGH, and set the time to 20 minutes. Press the dial to begin preheating.

  • Step 2

    Coat the lamb with the canola oil and season with salt and pepper. Cover the bones with aluminum foil to preserve their light color, if desired.

  • Step 3

    In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, mustard, parsley, and rosemary until well blended.

  • Step 4

    When the unit beeps to signify it has preheated, place the lamb skin-side down on the grill. Close the hood and cook for 10 minutes.

  • Step 5

    After 10 minutes, brush the entire lamb rack with the glaze. Use silicone-tipped tongs to flip the lamb so it is skin-side up. Close the hood and cook for 5 minutes.

  • Step 6

    After 5 minutes, carefully press the crispy fried onions onto the skin side of the lamb. Close the hood and continue cooking for 5 minutes more. Cooking is complete when the internal temperature reaches your desired preference. Remove the lamb when it is 5 to 10 degrees under your desired temperature (rare: 125°F to 130°F; medium-rare: 130°F to 140°F; medium: 140°F to 150°F), as the meat will continue to cook as it rests.

  • Step 7

    When cooking is complete, remove the lamb rack and allow it to rest on a cutting board for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
