  • 1 garlic clove, minced

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large oven safe skillet over medium high. Season each side of lamb liberally with salt and pepper.

Transfer skillet to oven and roast until instant-read thermometer inserted into center of lamb reads 135°F for medium rare, about 25-30 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.
