This entry could be titled, “how to impress friends and family with your cooking without doing a thing”. Trader Joe’s sells a truly amazing product – Frozen Seasoned Frenched Rack of Lamb. It is amazing for several reasons.
1. It’s easy to make. Just let it defrost in the fridge overnight. Take it out of its wrapper, plop it on a baking pan fat-side-up, and put it in the oven at 350°F for 20 minutes for rare, 25 minutes for medium-rare. Remove, let cool for a few minutes and cut between the bones to serve.
2. It’s delicious. The lamb is packed in garlic, salt, ground celery, canola oil, sesame seeds, rosemary and other spices. By the time it has defrosted the herb marinade has infused itself sufficiently into the meat. The resulting combination of flavors is perfect.
3. It’s affordable. At $9.99/lb this frozen rack of lamb is a great value. One pound yields eight chops which serves three with leftovers.
4. It’s great quality. TJ has high standards for all of its products, their frozen rack of lamb is no different.
