Being a sous vide virgin, I was terribly excited at a:- NOT cooking and knowing that my good friend Ian would produce something stunning and b:- knowing that a rack of lamb was on its way.
What can I say? The best lamb I’ve ever had. Here’s how to do it.
1) Buy a sous vide. I’ve just seen an offer for the machine, the vacuum sealer, the vacuum sealer rolls from sousvidetools.com @ £215.99
2) Make up a bag (according to instructions) and throw in a couple of sprigs of rosemary, a couple of shavings of lemon rind, two whole cloves of garlic. Season the rack with Maldon sea salt and coarse black pepper (usually sold as 7 cutlets) and place on top of the flavourings. Seal the bag, place in the sous vide, cook for an hour and a half at 53oC.
3) Keeping the rack whole, fry it for a minute on each side till nicely coloured.
You can see from the photo just how beautifully pink and soft it turned out to be. Oh joy, oh joy.
