Try this Honey-Glazed Rack of Lamb recipe with one of Temecula, California’s award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon. Paired here with roasted potatoes, a green salad, and a crusty bread baguette.

Prep Time: 20 Minutes

Cook Time: 30 Minutes

Yield: Serves 4 to 6


  • 1/2 c honey
  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • (2) 1 1/4 lbs racks of lamb, trimmed, and seasoned with salt and pepper
  • 1 Bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. I like ( Marshall Stuart Cabernet Sauvignon or Callaway winery & Vineyard Wild yeast Canernet Sauvignon )


  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • To make the glaze, whisk first 3 ingredients in small saucepan to blend. Cook to slightly thicken, about 8 minutes.
  • Place a skillet over high heat and sear lamb on all sides. Place lamb on baking sheet or rack. Brush each rack with some of the glaze.
  • Open Bottle of wine and let it breath. Enjoy a glass while you are cooking. Yummy.
  • Roast until thermometer inserted into center of lamb registers 130°F, brushing at least once more with glaze while cooking (about 30 minutes for medium rare).
  • Meanwhile, simmer remaining sauce for five minutes. Drizzle glaze over cut lamb chops when serving.

Enjoy with your wine of choice.
