  • Preparation Time25 mins
  • Cooking Time30 mins
  • Serves2
  • DifficultyMedium
25g fresh garlic, crushed
115g butter
950ml ruby port
1.4L veal stock
1 tbsp 3-pepper blend (equal parts cayenne, black pepper, and white pepper)
1 rack Australian lamb, fat cap on
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 tbsp jerk seasoning
475ml balsamic vinegar
Potato puree, for serving, if desired
Seasonal vegetables, for serving, if desired
1) In a saucepan, over medium heat, sweat the garlic with the butter, and then add the port wine. Reduce by a quarter. Once the wine has reduced, stir in 950ml of the veal stock and the 3-pepper blend. Reduce again by a quarter. Once the reduction is finished, strain through a fine mesh strainer and season with salt and pepper.

2) In a large container, combine the jerk seasoning with the balsamic vinegar and immerse the lamb. Let marinate for 30 minutes.

3) Remove the lamb from the marinade, and blacken in a dry, white-hot cast iron frying-pan. Once the lamb has blackened on all sides, rest and allow to cool completely.

4) With a sharp chef's knife remove the fat cap from the blackened lamb and cut the rack into four equal portions.

5) Place the lamb portions into a saute pan with the remaining veal stock and roast in the oven for 8 to 12 mins depending on desired doneness. Reheat port wine demi and serve with potato puree and seasonal vegetables, if desired.
