As promised, this gorgeous Rack of Lamb with Pomegranate Sauce is made using ingredients from “The Founders Box” which I received to do an unboxing post for The Taste Box a few weeks ago. The Founders Box included ground coffee, herbs de Provence, organic extra virgin olive oil and pomegranate molasses. This succulent and flavourful rack of lamb gets a dose of three of the quality ingredients that came with The Founders Box.
The herbs de Provence is used to flavour the mustard rub that’s slathered onto the lamb rack prior to applying the panko coating. It imparts a wonderful herbal note that’s fantastic with the mustard and lamb. The extra virgin olive oil is used in both the mustard rub and drizzled into the panko bread crumbs for flavour and to help browning.
The third and last ingredient used in this recipe is the pomegranate molasses and its boldness is fantastic with a stronger meat like lamb. It’s the finishing touch to a reduction of broth and port, giving a slightly tart and bitter note that blends amazingly with the sweetness from apricot jam and hint of fresh rosemary.
