This is delicious, quick and an easy recipe for crown roast lamb.
- Crown rack of lamb (roughly 8 ribs).
- Coarse grained salt
- Black pepper cloves
- Olive oil
Step 1 – Ensure that the rack of lamb has been removed from the fridge and kept at room temperature for as short a time as possible.
Step 2 – Ensure that your oven is pre-heated to a temperature of 190 degrees Celsius.
Step 3 – Grind the black pepper cloves and the coarse salt. Rub olive oil, and a liberal quantity of the freshly ground salt and black pepper onto the lamb.
Step 4 – Place the lamb onto a sizzling hot pan on your stove top cooker, cooking each side of the joint for around 2 minutes. This will seal the flavour of the lamb and keep the joint moist.
Step 5 – Cook the rack of lamb for half an hour in the pre-heated oven. Cook for longer if you prefer well-cooked meat but avoid the meat from over-cooking and drying out.
