Lamb Chops Recipe

Mediterranean Rack of Lamb with a Red Wine, Redcurrant and Herb Sauce.

Lamb Chops RecipeThis lamb chops recipe, using racks of lamb, is really quick and easy and absolutely delicious.

It's perfect for a dinner party as it can be quickly prepared before your guests arrive, and finished in the oven when they are chatting with a drink before you serve the meal.

The sauce can be made while the meat is resting. Then its all ready to serve with your choice of vegetables.

It really will impress your guests.
We like our lamb pink, but if you like it more well done, no problem, just follow our recipe.

Lamb Chops Recipe Method
  1. To prepare the lamb. Cut away all of the thick layer of fat on the outside of each rack of lamb, taking with it the thin sinewy layer of meat underneath – this will leave you with a thick meaty fillet and a fatty layer that lies against the bones.
  2. Score the fat layer on each rack to help it crisp. Season well all over.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large non stick fry pan over a high heat. When very hot, add the lamb and sear for 2 minutes each side, until browned all over.
  4. Move to a large roasting tin, and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  5. Mix all of the marinade ingredients together in a bowl, and using your hands, press the marinade mixture into the meat of each rack until it is evenly coated on both sides.
  6. Put the lamb into a pre heated oven at 240 C/ 220 C Fan / Gas Mark 9. For medium rare/pink allow 10 – 14 mins. Allow 20 minutes for well done.
  7. Remove tin from the oven and cover with foil.
  8. Allow to rest for 5 minutes.
  9. Meanwhile make the sauce. Put the redcurrant jelly into a saucepan over medium heat and allow to melt into a runny consistency, stirring with a wooden spoon.
  10. Gradually stir in the red wine until evenly mixed, and crumble in the stock cube.
  11. Turn the heat to high and allow the sauce to bubble and reduce.
  12. Drain off any meat juices and marinade mixture that have leached from the lamb during resting, put through a seive and add to the sauce. Continue to reduce for a few more minutes and remove from the heat. Gradually stir in the slaked cornflour and return to the heat stirring until thickened. Check for seasoning, and add more salt if necessary.
  13. Cut the lamb into cutlets and pour a neat pool of sauce on to each of your 4 warmed plates, arranging the cutlets neatly on top. Garnish each plate with a sprig of fresh rosemary. Serve immediately with your favorite vegetables......Fabulous!!
  14. Goes well with our scallop potatoes recipe.
