WHAT IS IT?
Ibérico French Rack comes from the best end of the Agnei Ibérico, it is the 8-9 centre ribs with exposed ends of bones, trimmed and without the backbone.
French-trimmed rack is the best-known lamb cut internationally and together with the quality of Agnei Ibérico and its great culinary value, it is the ideal cut for use in haute cuisine.
HOW TO PREPARE IT
• On the griddle/frying pan: Brown the rack fat side down to crisp it up (you can score the fat in a diamond pattern to allow the heat to penetrate). Once browned, cut the cutlets one by one and cook on the griddle in the usual way.
• In the oven: Place in the oven with the skin side up and roast at 180ºC for 30 or 25 minutes. Half way through add a little water or white wine and a sprinkling of aromatic herbs such as thyme, oregano, rosemary etc.
