Roasted Lamb Dinner

Friday, February 8, 2013

Happy Foodie Friday!

It's been awhile since I've posted a food post. I've been cooking a lot and would post it on Instagram and Twitter.. but haven't had the time to take the photos and blog about it. So here is an easy dinner that I had cooked for Hubby and I for New Years Day. I know that's been over a month ago but I finally got around to edit the photos and put this together for you guys. :)

Here's the final lamb dish with two sides plus sauce. Which I will show you how to make! Surprisingly, it took me under 30-35 mins to make everything! Seriously...just have to learn how to utilize the time in between each dish. 

Let's get started...

 Salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder the rack of lamb on both sides.
Place into a pan on med-high to brown on each side. 5-7 mins for each side.

Once browned, place into a foil-lined baking dish with bone side facing down. 
Cover the ends with foil so they won't burn while roasting. Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees, and bake the rack of lamb for about 30 mins depending on the thickness of the meat.

My cute owl timer that I got at Cost World Market! So adorbs!! 

 In the same pan, add half a sweet onion (sliced) and cook for about 5 mins until slightly brown.
Add salt and pepper for taste.

 Add two cups of sliced mushrooms to the onions and sauteed till the mushrooms are cooked. 

Add one cup of heavy cream to the mushrooms and onions. 
Cook about 10 mins till the cream is mixed well in. Once done, put the sauce to the side in a bowl.

After the sauce is completed, add three stripes of chopped bacon to a pan on med-high.
Cook until crispy!

 My piggie bowl! ^__^

 Once the bacon turns crispy, put it aside into a bowl.

In the bacon fat, add about a pound of brussel sprouts (cut in halves).
Cook for about 10-15mins on med-high. Add a little salt and pepper for taste.

Once the brussel sprouts are done cooking, put them into a dish and add the crispy bacon on top! 

 During this time, the rack of lamb is done in the oven.. take it out to let it rest for 5 mins.

 This is a side dish of roasted onion potatoes. I quartered six medium Yukon potatoes and added a tablespoon of vegetable oil and a packet of Lipton dry onion soup mix. Mix well then put them into a baking dish. SUPER easy!! Bake for 25 mins when you put in the lamb at the same time together. Two dishes in one oven makes it so simple.

And there you have it! It may seem like a lot of work but in reality, it's not at all! I have made this dinner several times and I'm all about keeping things nice and simple. :)

Hope you guys enjoy and maybe try one of these dishes (or all three plus sauce) out!

Have a great weekend!!

  45. I bookemarked this post to try... but then I went to the grocery store and realized how expensive lamb rack was. I grabbed lamb loin chops instead and tried my best to make a red wine gravy off the cuff. My boyfriend said it was the best he's ever had.

    Thanks to your inspiration.
