Honey-roasted rack of lamb

    1 hour 30 minutes

    Exceptionally flavourful, lamb is a super source of niacin and zinc. Like all the other types of red meat, it also supplies a useful amount of iron.

    • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 3 tablespoons reduced-salt soy sauce
    • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
    • 4 zucchini, cut into strips
    • 4 parsnips, peeled and cut into strips
    • 4 carrots, peeled and cut into strips
    • 1 stalk celery, halved lengthways then cut into 10cm lengths

    1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Combine the honey, lemon juice, soy sauce and garlic in a medium bowl; put aside.
    2. Lightly spray a small baking dish with cooking spray. Add the zucchini, parsnips, carrots, celery and capsicum and roast for about 20 minutes or until the vegetables are lightly browned.
    3. Top the vegetables with the rosemary and pour over the stock. Arrange the lamb racks on top of the vegetables, baste with the honey sauce, and roast for 20 minutes for rare (lamb will be pink), 30 minutes for medium, or 40 minutes for well done. Continue basting with the sauce occasionally.
    4. Remove the baking dish from the oven and put the lamb racks and vegetables aside; cover and rest for 10 minutes before carving the meat.
    5. Boil the pan juices until they thicken slightly. Serve the sauce with the lamb and the vegetables.

    As a relatively inexperienced cook, I found this really easy to make, but very tasty to eat! I ended up using kipfler potatoes instead of parsnips as I couldn't find any at the supermarket!  -  12 Dec 2010


    The lamb turned out amazing!! The only thing was the kids thought the vegies flavour was a bit strong.. Perfect for adult dinner party..  -  14 Sep 2009


    Disappointing. The vegetables were bland and just basting the racks with the soy/honey/garlic/lemon mix didn't add much flavour.  -  07 May 2015
