Now I don't usually take photos of raw meat, but this rack of lamb looked too beautiful to resist, all dressed up in a rub of rosemary, black pepper, sea salt and extra virgin olive oil. I have a made rack of lamb before and loved the recipe, but I thought I'd wander around the blogasphere for something different and came across a gorgeous looking dish at Abstract Gourmet. It sounded too good to pass up. Actually it was the first one I came across and it stopped me in my tracks. I am glad I stumbled upon Matt's site. I'll be back often.
He served it with great sounding sweet potatoes but I'm really trying to watch what I eat and since the sauce has a touch of honey (it's soooooooooooo good), I just served it with some asparagus. Still a very delicious and satisfying meal. That's why I love the South Beach Diet. Gourmet meals AND you lose weight. I took off the 3 pounds that was creeping back up, PLUS I lost an extra pound - all without the exercise regime I keep meaning to do.
So here's my version of Matt's Rack of Lamb with Honey Balsamic Sauce. It was awesome even without the sweet potatoes.
