Herb Infused Lamb Rack
This is one of our FAVOURITE ways to cook lamb. It becomes deliciously tender from the steaming but still a little browned from the baking. We have chosen to use parsley, rosemary and thyme as our herbs, but feel free to use your own preferred herb infusion.
Recipe Tester Feedback: “Oh my! We had this as our Sunday roast – so easy to do, but the result was like I spent hours in the kitchen. Tasty, moist and tender – just yummy! If you want it medium then just reduce the steaming and baking times." - Gail
