This is an ideal way of cooking racks of lamb when you don't want a crumbed coating. I like to serve this with a salad & potatoes (done however takes your fancy on the day!)or with steamed vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower & carrots and a jacket baked potato, with a horror of horrors......gravy made with a pkt mix! LOL
- 2 racks of lamb (frenched & fatty skin removed if desired)
- 1 -2 tablespoon oil
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic (a sweeter flavour is obtained by using roasted bulbs of garlic mashed)
- freshly ground mix of coloured peppercorn (pink, green & black)
- Preheat oven to 350'F.
- Heat oil in pan and sear lamb racks on all sides starting with the meat side first.
- Remove from pan and spread with garlic.
- Sprinkle on the pepper mix and then sprinkle with salt.
- Place on a shallow pan and place in oven.
- Roast for about 20-30mins or until cooked to your preference.
- Remove from oven and cover with tin foil or leave in turned off oven to rest for 5mins.
- Either slice or leave whole to serve, depending on size.
Wonderful! I made for the first time about 2 years ago...since then I have made it several times. It is a beautiful way to prepare rack of lamb or lamb chops (which I have done also). I serve them with fingerling potatoes that I boil in heavily salted water until fork tender. When they are removed for the water a nice thin layer of salt forms, add butter and pepper (if you desire) and enjoy. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe it is a family favorite.
My 4 racks had either 4 or 5 chops on them and to well done took th hour but were still beautifully moist (even though I had cut a huge amount of fat of the racks). After pan frying to brown I allowed just over 1 teaspoon of minced garlic per rack and sprinkled over the freshly ground pepper and grinded a little salt before roasting in a 175C fan forced oven. Thank you Tisme, DH has requested to be made again, made for Aussie Recipe Swap #26 March 2009 as a recipextra for group 4 Beetroot.
Fabulous and delicious. And it couldn't be more simple. I made it with Roasted-Garlic Mashed Potatoes, roasting one extra garlic head for the rack of lamb. Thanks, Jen T! Made for Aussie New Zealand Recipe Swap #21.
