I saw the most beautiful rack of lamb (Is that weird that I think a piece of meat is beautiful). We are addicted to our EGG® and this rack of lamb came out perfect! We were outside planing our Mums and I saw all of the mint growing so I decided to make a quick mint sauce. So yummy. I also roasted acorn squash (link recipe here) but I cut it i quarters. Amazing dinner!

This recipe also follows the paleo diet and is gluten free! Enjoy…

Garlic Crusted Rack of Lamb with Shallot Sauce

OMG - That is the only work I can think of to start this recipe.  I love one pot recipes and this one was  a big hit for dinner.  We had another couple over for dinner and my husband kept asking me, "are you sure that pan is big enough"  Of course honey!  My lodge cast iron pan is Amazing and has not left my stove stop for the entire month of December!  The shallot sauce really made this dish pop with extra flavor.  All of those bits from the lamb along with the shallot, mustard and broth were the perfect combination!

Go ahead and make this! 

BTW! Mostly because it's just Glenn and I (and of course Jake) we don't need to do big shopping therefore I go almost everyday.  Almost everyone I know has told me the meats at Costco are great!  We really had a hard time believing that as we go to specialty meat markets for ours.  Well, I was at Costco with my sister-in-law and she grabbed 2 so I decided to get myself a few.  WOW the meat was amazing!  Very impressed by their meats.  Great for families or entertaining!

Lamb Bolognese

During the summer we love grilling and we have the best butcher near us.  ED Stearns Meats has everything we need for the summer.  Some of their meats are frozen but you can just call them and they will take them out and have them ready for you.  Also, the butcher will cut your favorite slices of meat right in front of you!

I was at Stearns getting veal chops, pork butt and decided to grab some Lamb Shanks to make this delicious bolognese.  Give it a try!  Very yummy...  I served with roasted cauliflower but you can serve with pasta, polenta or just eat out of bowl and dip your bread!  Enjoy...

These make a perfect appetizer for any occasion. This is a quick yet gourmet appetizer to really dazzle your guests! If you can't find lamb chops ask your butch to cut up a rack of lamb into individual chops. They will gladly do it for you! You can assemble the chops in advance and keep refrigerated until ready to grill.

*Cind's Note* To finely mince garlic, after you peel and chop your garlic continue to finely chop. Take a pinch of sea salt and sprinkle on the garlic. Take the flat edge of your chefs knife and press firmly down to the garlic and rub on the board.
