This low-carb dish is the perfect choice to feast your family on a special occasion.

Unlike the traditional oven roasting method, you will be making this rack of lamb in a pressure cooker! You can use the Instant Pot — it's one of my favorite ways to cook lamb. Apart from saving a ton of time, this method produces deliciously moist and tender meat in just 20 minutes!

If you don't have an Instant Pot, you can roast the lamb in the oven (follow these cooking instructions) or even in a slow cooker (Cook on low for 5-6 hours, turning the racks 1 or 2 times or spooning the juices over. You won't need more than 1/4 cup/60 ml of stock when using a crockpot).

This easy rack of lamb recipe is perfect for quick a weeknight dinner. Even if you have last-minute guests at your house, you can make this spiced rack of lamb and a quick low-carb side to serve with in just 45 minutes!

It's really easy to me to be keto on Thanksgiving because I don't have a sweet tooth. We're having roast turkey with gravy and deviled eggs for starter. No dessert for me but I may have some whiskey 😊
