Lamb Rack


Cut from the front end of ribs, also known as the ‘best end’, the rack of lamb is a princely cut of meat. We present it here French-trimmed, which gives it that ‘centrepiece’ look and makes it easy to cook. Rack of lamb is a celebration-worthy dish that will not disappoint.

It is a good idea to cook rack of lamb in a skillet that is suitable for an oven. Season it well with plenty of olive oil and massage in garlic and rosemary. Place skin-side down in a cold pan and bring the heat into it. Once the fat has rendered and begun to caramelise, seal all over and then transfer to the oven. Be careful not to overcook, as a cut this good should be served blushing pink. Serve with lamb sauce, creamy mashed potato and green vegetables.


Rack of lamb requires expert preparation, so we work with master butchers who ensure ours is immaculate. This cut is French-trimmed by hand in time-honoured, traditional fashion. We never compromise on our standards, which is central to maintaining the quality you have come to expect. When choosing a cut of lamb, look for firm, fine-grained meat with a velvety texture; it should be moist, rather than dry or slimy.


The Black Farmer works with the best local suppliers. We source highest-quality lamb from the South West of England, which is fed on grass and free to graze the lush fields that abound in the area. By working with local produce and farmers, we promote and encourage a sustainable and ethical approach to meat eating, which reduces animal stress and lowers food miles as much as possible.

Here’s cooking instruction for preparing a delicious rack of lamb:

1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C) and make sure the rack of lamb is at room temperature. This allows for even cooking.
2. Season the lamb rack generously with salt and pepper, ensuring all sides are coated.
3. Heat a skillet or oven-safe pan over high heat. Add a bit of oil or butter to the pan and sear the lamb rack on all sides until it develops a nice brown crust. This should take about 2-3 minutes per side.
4. Once seared, transfer the lamb rack to a roasting pan or place the oven-safe skillet directly into the preheated oven.
5. Roast the lamb rack in the oven for about 15-20 minutes for medium-rare doneness or adjust the cooking time according to your preference. Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature; it should read around 135°F (57°C) for medium-rare or 145°F (63°C) for medium.
6. Remove the lamb rack from the oven and let it rest for about 5 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute and ensures a tender and juicy result.
7. Slice the rack of lamb into individual chops and serve immediately. It pairs well with sides like roasted potatoes, steamed vegetables, or a fresh salad.

Remember to adjust the cooking time based on the size of your lamb rack and desired doneness. Enjoy your flavorful rack of lamb!
