Rack of Lamb and Yogi gets cooking.
I am going to cook my favourite recipe today and that’s Rack of Lamb.
What do you mean favourite rack of lamb recipe? You have never cooked before and this is your first time cooking a rack lamb.
I have cooked plenty of times before. Ok this is the first time I have cooked a rack of Lamb. Do you even know where this part of the lamb this comes from, I do here I have a lamb map for cuts, so that you all know where the rack comes from. Here is a picture of a lamb and all the different cuts and also a picture of a Rack of Lamb
Yawn Yawn, That is fascinating Yogi Do tell us more. I am going for a kip hopefully the meal will be cooked when I awake.
Ok Misty Have a nice kip be nice to get on with the cooking without you looking over my shoulder..
What was that?
I said I will concentrate on cooking and try not to wake you. rack of lamb recipe. Right where was I are yes we are going to cook a Rack of Lamb which we bought from Tesco in West Durrington The new store has a butcher counter and they have a nice selection of fresh English and Scottish meat and if you ask the butcher they will prepare the meat the way you want it. So we asked to have two racks tied together like the picture above which gave us a joint around 650kg just over 1 pound in weight. Local meat is better than imports, especially with Lamb as New Zealand lamb is frozen before transporting and it never taste the same after being frozen, nice fresh English beef or Welsh or Scottish is what you need cost more but the taste is far better. Our joint cost about £14.00 and would feed around four.
I Used an idesit KD3E1WG electric cooker from Teso Direct.
Ok here are the ingredients for my recipe.
Sprouts fresh or frozen these really give the extra taste to the meal.
Frozen Roast Potatoes
Bisto A full Large spoon
Provinece herbs and spices with Rosemary.
Blossom Hill White Wine.
Rack of Lamb. (Best end of Neck or Cutlets or Breakfast chop’s). There are 6-8 cutlets on a joint and we have two tied together Ask your counter Butcher at Tesco to tie two together they are very helpful and they are good at what they do also the meat they have is brill.
I went to lidl to purchase the rest of my ingredients including the baking dish
Cooking our Rack of Lamb
It is easy. Set the oven to 180c (160c fan) sprinkle them with herbs I used province mixture of herbs about £1.50 Sprinkle all over the Rack of Lamb. Pop them in a dish, add a large glass of white wine let it sit for a few hours and then roast them for 90 minutes or so depending on weight the one I have weighed around 650kg about 1lb4oz. And you have gravy from the wine and the meat juices. The joint is two racks of lamb tied together so this will take longer. While cooking scoop the fluids in the baking dish and poor over the top of the Lamb.
You can plunge in a knife and separate them to check how well done they are. They are very user friendly and will happily be bunged back into the oven if they need a little more time.
