Rack of lamb

ate.2019.12.31.d.jpg

I've never made a rack of lamb before! This was good, though I overcooked it it bit. I was aiming for medium rare but ended up getting medium. It was still moist and tender, though.

It is expensive! This tiny rack was $31.78, and it make 3 servings. If you added more sides it could make 4 servings (2 chops instead of 3 per serving).

ate.2019.12.31.c1.jpg

I basically used a scaled down version of this recipe however because my rack was thinner and flatter I was worried about the garlic rosemary paste burning so I lowered the heat to 400°F.

Season the lamb with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

ate.2019.12.31.c3.jpg

I used 6 cloves of garlic and 3 sprigs of rosemary.

ate.2019.12.31.c2.jpg

Combine the garlic and rosemary in a mini food processor. Add olive oil to make a paste.

ate.2019.12.31.c4.jpg

Apply to the rack, fat side up, bone side down.

ate.2019.12.31.c5.jpg

I roasted it a little too long. It should take 30 - 40 minutes for a 2.75 lb. roast. Cook to 140°F internal temperature, and it should rise to 145°F while resting for medium rare.

ate.2019.12.31.c6.jpg

I served it with sautéed Swiss chard. Just cooked in olive oil with a clove of garlic, minced. Seasoned with salt, freshly ground black pepper, and a splash of champagne vinegar.

Prime Rib

ate.2019.12.24.d.jpg
I've never made a standing rib roast before, so I gave it a try, and it worked!

That piece is about 10.8 oz., so I cut it in half before eating it, so I got 4 servings out of the 2.25 lb. roast, which is actually a good deal!

ate.2019.12.24.c1.jpg

As the roast was really small, it would not stand by itself so I tied it to the pan. That worked perfectly!

ate.2019.12.24.c2.jpg

I basically used this recipe, and it worked great.

Season with salt, freshly ground black pepper, and garlic powder.

Roast for 30 minutes at 450°F.

Lower the heat to 350°F and roast until the internal temperature is 110°F. With a full-sized roast it could take 30 to 60 minutes more (around 15-20 minutes per pound).

It took 15 minutes and my tiny roast was 120°F, however it was perfectly done. Since this smaller roast has so much less mass cooking to the higher temperature worked perfectly.

ate.2019.12.24.c3.jpg

Tent loosely with foil and let rest for 15 minutes.

I sliced it half and removed the bone. Originally I thought this was two servings, but it turns out to be more like 4 of the serving size that I normally eat.

ate.2019.12.24.c4.jpg

I vacuum sealed and froze the leftovers. They should reheat perfectly in the sous vide, maybe around 122°F.

ate.2019.12.24.c5.jpg

For the horseradish sauce, I made a small amount of this recipe. Basically:

A couple tablespoons of prepared horseradish
A tablespoon of sour cream
A tablespoon of mayonnase
A teaspoon of Dijon mustard

It was good!
