Chops away – marinated lamb

Lamb chops - sublime!

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.

Thanks to Barbara for this recipe and for the opportunity to try it.
