  • 2 tablespoons coarsely crushed or cracked mixed peppercorns (black, white, green and pink)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 4 Tbsp olive oil

PREPARATION

  • Preheat oven to 400°F
  • Score outer fat with sharp shallow cuts spaced about an inch apart.
  • Place the racks bone side down with the fat side up in a baking pan and wrap the exposed ribs with foil to prevent burning.
  • Roast at 400°F for 7-8 minutes
  • Without opening your oven, reduce the heat to 300°F.
  • Cook for 7-15 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat reads:125°F for rare ~ 135°F for medium rare
  • Remove from oven and cover loosely with foil
  • Rest for 5-10 minutes.
  • Slice between the bones either individually or in 2-3 rib sections.
