On average, Americans consume less than a pound of lamb per year. That’s amazing when compared to the whopping 270 pounds of other red meats we eat annually.
We’ve been racking our brains, trying to figure out how to stop such delicious meat from being so overlooked—and we think we’ve come up with a solution: Trader Joe’s Marinated Rack of Lamb with Herbs.
The process of cooking lamb makes some people sheepish, since it’s a food with which most of us are unfamiliar. Worry not! The fears associated with preparation, seasoning, and cooking are put to rest with Trader Joe’s Rack of Lamb.
It’s marinated with olive oil, garlic, sea salt and white pepper and topped with herbs (parsley and thyme) for a savory profile that emphasizes the essence of the lamb. The flavor is perfection—but what about the actual cooking? Our supplier has fully cooked this Rack using the sous-vide method—vacuum-sealing the meat and slow-cooking it in water at a constant, low temperature. They’ve achieved a very evenly cooked, tender and juicy result. All you have to do is pop the meat in the conventional oven or microwave to reheat.
Our Rack of Lamb pairs wonderfully with more delicate reds, such as Malbec or Syrah. Try La Finca Argentine Malbec. Plate it up with TJ’s Garlic Potatoes with Parmesan Sauce, and Organic Green Beans for a delectable, repeatable meal.
$15.99 a pound (weight varies per package) is another reason to love Trader Joe’s Marinated Rack of Lamb with Herbs, and at that price, we’d like to think it’ll become an integral part of increasing your annual enjoyment of this underrated meat.
