Rack of lamb is one of the more expensive cuts of lamb and is, appropriately, also known as the 'best end'. Good for quick roasting, it is a very popular and attractive cut taken from the lamb ribs. The meat is tender and melt in the mouth with a light and delicate flavour. A full rack of lamb will usually contain 7 ribs with each cutlet being an individual rib steak, but racks are often sold as 3 or 4 rib sections.
Approximate weight for a 3-rib rack is 230g (8.1oz), a 4-rib rack 320g (11.3oz) and a 7-rib rack 550g (1.2lb).
