About this product

Rack of lamb is a cut of lamb that includes the rib bones and the meat that is attached to them. It is a relatively tender cut of meat that is often roasted or grilled. It is typically served as an elegant and upscale dish, and is often seasoned with herbs such as rosemary and thyme before cooking. The rack can be cut into individual chops for serving, or the bones can be frenched (meaning the meat and fat is trimmed away to expose the bones) for a more visually appealing presentation. It is a high in protein, iron and zinc. It is also a good source of Vitamin B12 and omega-3 fatty acids.

Preperation

Rack of lamb is typically prepared by first seasoning it with a mixture of herbs, salt, and pepper. The most common seasoning herbs are rosemary, thyme, and garlic. Some recipes also call for a mustard or breadcrumb coating to be applied to the meat before cooking. The rack is then typically roasted in the oven at a high temperature (around 425-450 degrees Fahrenheit) for about 20-25 minutes for medium rare, or slightly longer for a more well-done finish. It is important to let it rest for few minutes before serving.

Grilling is another popular method of cooking rack of lamb. In both cases, it’s important to use a meat thermometer to ensure the lamb is cooked to the desired temperature (145F for medium rare, 160F for medium, 170F for well-done).

Serve it with sides like roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, or a salad to complete the meal.
