(PICS) Rack of Lamb with Grilled Cipollini Onions

This is from a cook a little while back that I never posted.

Frenched rack of lamb al la Trader Joe's. I made a wet rub with all the ingredients in the raws picture. I looked at a couple of recipes, but in the end I just winged it like I usually do.

I seared off the rack at about 500 about three minutes a side and then took it off the fire and brought the temp down to 300-350 and roasted it for another 15-20 min or so. Pulled at 135 and rested.

The onions were just olive oil with salt and pepper. I put them on when the rack when back on at 350. Served with mashed potatoes and it was great. I would do it again.

Last weekend I cooked some veal chops on the egg. I did a flash pickled mushroom demi glace sauce on the stove top. They came out great, but I didn't get any pictures. Lamb and veal are a good change of pace every once in a while.

    Nice cook, Spoon !

    Hard to beat a good, medium-rare rack of lamb - one of my favs.
    For your next feat - look at the Dizzy Pig site and use their recipe - also good!

    Man that looks great! I love the contrast of the dark crust to the pink interior. Those are cool skewers you got there...where did you get those?

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg. 

  • Looks great! I love lamb but the better half doesn't. I may cook this next weekend when she is out of town!

    Beautiful crust on that lamb and the inside looks great too.

    Thanks all.

    @Misippi Egger I love Dizzy Pig. I think I have about 8 or 9 different kinds of their rub, but I haven't tried their recipe. Red Eye Express is one of my favs of theirs though.

    @SmokeyPitt My M-I-L got them for me as a present a couple of years ago, so I am not sure where she got them. I found some that are similar:

    Lamb looks delicious... I like lamb a lot, but the missus has been opposed. Seeing some the other day on Food Network she said... that looks good maybe we should try it. Possibilities... :)

    Nice meal...

    Start her with rack of lamb and you will have her hooked. Then lamb chops and leg of lamb.
    Be sure to trim off most of the fat (especially the 'hard' fat) so she won't get any of that strong 'lamby' taste many people don't like.

    That is a great looking meal.  I also like to take the onions and roast on BGE or oven for 45 minutes or so after peeling the outer layer off and leaving the root.  Little Italian salad dressing and roast for 45 minutes or so until soft.  What I don't eat I place in a glass jar on my counter with some balsamic vinegar for a snack with cheese and crackers at another time.  Baby portbellos are also done this way and placed in the same jar.
