I do cook a lot of Western food but I rarely cook the typical Anglo food of meat and 3 veg which is steak and potatoes and peas and carrots.
I guess it’s because I’m scared of overcooking the steaks and making it tough.
Jenuhlah orang nak menggigit and nak chew and nak menelan the daging tu nanti kalau tough kan.
Dah lah hubby I ni jenis yang suka his steaks still mooing and baaing (hahahaha, takde lah seteruk tu but he does like his steaks rare to medium rare).
The Other Half likes to occasionally have steaks but wife dia ni selalu buat2 tak dengar aje bila dia mintak steaks, hikhikhik….
I would rather cook his other favourite foods than steak/ chops.
But when the butcher had a super sweet deal of 2kg of lamb racks for $30, I couldn’t bypass that deal so I bought 2kgs of lamb racks, hehehe.
So, for dinner tadi, I used up 1kg of the rack to make marinated roast lamb racks with roasted potatoes, bean salad and bread rolls.
I marinated the lamb racks for an hour with garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, rosemary, honey, wholegrain mustard, salt and olive oil. I just mixed all the marinades in a bowl and then brush it over the lamb.
Then I put them all in a big roasting pan with parboiled potatoes and sweet potatoes (kena parboiled the potatoes so they will cook properly at the same time as the lamb.)
Roast them in 180°C (fan-forced oven) for about 20-25 minutes depending on how cooked you want your meat to be.
After semua dah masak, then you can ask your ‘helpers’ to set the table with steak knives and forks, and plenty of serviettes to wipe your sticky fingers .
My rack of lamb with roasted potatoes (and the burnt bits), mint gravy, beans salad and bread rolls.
The Other Half and Miss 8 terus started drooling when they saw the lamb racks because they love lamb so much, hihihihihi.
What about you guys???? Did this lamb rack make you drool?……
And then, mana boleh tunjuk the outside aje kan, kena lah tunjuk the inside jugak kan .
We think this is medium/ medium rare.
The Other Half looked like he was having a ‘blissful’ moment at the dinner table just now when he put the lamb pieces in his mouth!
