#CookTheBox : Rack of Lamb with Balsamic Roasted Strawberries

Ingredients

  • Rack of Lamb, cleaned & prepared for a crown roast
  • 1 tsp dry rosemary
  • Salt & Pepper

Instructions

  1. Cook at 425 degrees for 10 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat and finish at 350 degrees for 15 more minutes.
  3. Do not overcook! Lamb should be cooked to a maximum of 130 degrees. Use a thermometer to ease your anxiety if necessary. Remember that carry over heat may increase the final temp of the meat by up to 5 degrees!

Ingredients

  • Strawberries, with top cut off (as many as you’d like, this stores well)
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar, more if you like balsamic
  • 1 sprig rosemary

Instructions

  1. Roast at 375 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes until really soft.
  2. Blend in blender, add to sauce pan and reduce to desired texture.

OPTIONAL: If you’d like it to be a little less sweet (if you are serving it with roasted meat) add a cup of strong chicken stock to sauce pan when reducing and reduce a little longer. If you have chicken base in your pantry a tablespoon on that will also do the trick.
