GOSHEN — 1st Place Lamb – Cut

4 Mo’s, Elkhart

Rack of Lamb Glazed


with Citrus and Vinegar

2 full racks of lamb, about 2 to 2-1/2 lbs. each

Place the lamb in a large container and pour the marinade on top. Cover, chill and allow to marinate at least 2 hours and up to 8 hours (the longer the better). Remove from fridge and bring to room temperature. Pat dry.

Season heavily with salt and pepper. Sear lamb on a hot grill until fat starts to caramelize, then move to indirect heat.

Cook, brushing often with glaze, until meat is to desired doneness, about 115 degrees for medium-rare.

Slice between the bones and serve sprinkled with coarse sea salt. Makes 4-6 servings.

Citrus marinade:

2 tsp. whole fennel seed, toasted

juice of 2 lemons

juice of 2 oranges

1 clove garlic, peeled

2 T. extra virgin olive oil

1 T. crushed red pepper flakes

Blend all ingredients in blender or food processor until combined, about 30 seconds.

Vinegar glaze:

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

1/2 cup Vincotto (or additional 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar)

1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

1/2 T. finely chopped rosemary

pinch of salt

Combine vinegar, Vincotto and red pepper flakes in small saucepan and reduce by half, about 8 minutes. Add rosemary and salt.
