Simple pan roasted Saltbush lamb rack

This is the first time I tasted and cooked a saltbush lamb. So I just wanted to keep it simple.

The marbling on the lamb was so beautiful. The And I just knew it was going to taste amazing! Well, just as long as I do not over cook the rack. Timing was crucial.

I simply dry rubbed it with dark roasted wattleseed, a pinch of salt & pepper.

  • Set oven to 200°
  • Seal off the lamb rack in the pan for couple of mins on each side
  • Place the lamb in the oven for 20mins
  • Allow it to rest before consumption
  • Make use of the juices in the pan to make a nice rich red wine sauce
  • Serve with roasted kilpers & cauliflower mash

The lamb was very tender and juicy. It has a very distinct taste from the old saltbush that it fed on.  I am sure the neighbour must be envious of the aroma that was coming from my kitchen. The dark roasted wattleseed gave the lamb a very rich & deep colouring. To be honest, I am not sure if it added anything to the taste? Salt and pepper will do the trick. It really doesn’t need anything else.
