Rack of Lamb with Grain-Free Herb & Mustard Crust

by KetoDietApp.com

Step 1Bring the lamb racks to room temperature before cooking. Preheat the oven to 200 °C/ 400 °F (fan assisted), or 220 °C/ 425 °F (conventional).

Step 2Season the racks with salt and pepper. Heat a large pan greased with 1 tablespoon of ghee over a high heat and place in the lamb racks with the fatty side down (ideally one rack at a time to avoid overcooking).

Step 3Cook for just 2-3 minutes until browned. Turn on the other side and cook for about 30 seconds. Using tongs, cook the rack standing up for another 30 seconds and on the sides for 30 seconds to seal the meat from all sides.

Step 4Place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and let it cool down slightly. Meanwhile, prepare the crust. Place the pork rinds, minced garlic, rosemary, more salt and pepper (skip salt if using salted pork rinds) and the remaining 1 tablespoon of ghee into a food processor.

Step 5Pulse until crumbly (I use a Kenwood mixer with a food processor attachment). Wrap a piece of aluminium foil tightly around the exposed rib bones to prevent them from burning. Spread the mustard over the top fatty parts.

Step 6Add the pork rind & herb crust and press it in using your fingers so it won't fall off during baking. Place in the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes (medium-rare) or 20-23 minutes (medium). Remove from the oven and cover with aluminium foil and let it rest for about 10 minutes. The meat will keep cooking from the residual heat resulting in evenly cooked and juicy meat.

Step 7When ready to be served, remove the aluminium foil and discard. Use a sharp knife to gently slice the racks to prevent the crust from falling off.

Step 8Best eaten immediately while still warm. You can store the ribs covered in the fridge for up to 3 days. Always reheat in the oven or microwave before serving.
