Rack Of Lamb

A Frenched rack of lamb is an elegant, easy-to-execute preparation that all seasoned cooks should be able to perform. Watch this video to learn how to properly remove the belly and rib meat from the cut.

To debone a chicken, first you must cut out the backbone. Slice the keel bone and then crack it open. You can then remove the keel bone and cut your chicken into halves. Separate the thighs and breasts, and remove the chicken legs. Take off the wing tips, and separate the wings and breasts. Then, remove the rib bones and score the chicken legs. Scrape meat from the leg bones using a knife and slice the meat to remove the bone completely. Score the thighs, scrape the meat from the bones, and remove those bones completely, too.

Grasp the knife by the handle allowing your thumb and index finger to rest on the blade for support. Before handling a knife, put a light to medium duty cut resistant glove on the hand opposite of the hand that holds the knife. The glove will stay on the hand until the knife has been cleaned and properly stored. Use the right knife for the right job. Keep it sharp.

Place the blade of the knife on the flat surface with the edge facing away from your body. Flip the knife and wipe the other side of the blade as well. Dip the knife in the solution and then take it out. Using a cloth soaked in the hot water solution, scrub the blade of the knife. Do it very lightly to prevent scratches. After you have removed visible dirt from the blade of your knife, clean the handle with soapy water. Rinse the knife thoroughly under running water. Dry the knife by using a clean dishtowel. Wash kitchen knives immediately after using them so that the food does not dry on their blades. It is never accepted to place your knife in a drawer without a plastic guard. Make sure that knives lying on flat surfaces are never covered with towels or napkins. After handling a knife, lay it down in a clear area with the blade and point away from the body and away from the edge of the table or cutting area. A knife guard is a rigged plastic sleeve that fully encloses the blade. A glass knife block sits on the counter offering convenient access when working and when safely putting knives away. A magnetic bar is a wall mounted magnetic bar design to hold knives firmly in place.

When preparing a rack of lamb for roasting it's customary to remove the belly and the rib meat from the cut. A frenched rack of lamb is an elegant, easy to execute preparation that all seasoned cooks should be able to preform. Begin by removing the rib flap, then flip it over and start making careful cuts down the back of each rib bone. Remember you're cutting through the sinew not all the way into the bone. Now start working the sinew away from the rib bones. Using a clean kitchen rag helps do the step easily, but make sure you treat the rag as a raw meet contaminated product. Get each rib to at least half an inch down before moving onto pulling the rest down. Now work the sinew away from the rest of each bone. Once the sinew is loosened from each rib lay the rack with the inside facing down so you can remove the rib flap. Carefully slice through to remove the flap taking care not to cut the loin muscle. At this point run your edge along the rib bones to carefully clean up any remaining muscle and fat. When roasting the rack whole place it in the roasting pan with the outside of the rack facing up. The bones insulate the loin muscle from direct contact with the roasting pan. This allows for a beautiful even cooked rack of lamb.

    knife great sharp handle curved blade boning mercer nice handles
    Extremely sharp easy to handle. Best knives I've ever bought. I would highly recommend these to anyone who just starting out in a business, as they are one the cheaper side but amazing quality
    I have tried several other knives for D boning chicken and turkey and none have preformed like this one. We make our own dog food and often need to cut the meat off of the bone or just section a whole chicken or turkey, this knife does it seamlessly . highly recommend giving it a try you won’t be sorry. We always wash it by hand rather than putting it in the dishwasher. It is sharp and I would recommend getting a cover especially if storing in a drawer. It is sharp.
    We use the color coded handles to organize our kitchen and keep certain colors in specific sections. Great quality for the price for the average kitchen use.
    This knife, perfect for working in the kitchen very good for cuts of meat and bone is a very strong knife, but the only thing that I do not like is that it loses the edge very fast, otherwise well
    This knife is impressive and high quality. It is sturdy and very sharp. It hardly ever needs to be sharpener and the handle is comfortable to hold. The price is unbeatable. This is an excellent choice!
    An awesome 6" curved stiff boning with a great blue handle that makes it easy to get a good grip. The knife is perfect for slicing sandwiches. Great design and very strong blade.
    I am very happy with my purchase! I was expecting something far less than what I purchased for this price. I definitely can't complain. This knife comes with a very sharp blade that stays sharp and the handle is very comfortable on your hands while using.
    This mercer boning knife is a heck of a bargain. The knife comes razor sharp with a nice non slip rubber grip. I find myself using it for other tasks like cutting veggies as well as its intended use of cutting meat
    Mercer always makes great knives. This 6 inch curved boning knife is perfect. we love the different color handles which prevents cross contamination and the knife stays in the proper work place.
    Love it I used it to carve my ham at home this thanksgiving. And it did the best job. No more electric knives required. Thank you.
    I love this knife. I really like the handles on Mercer knives in general. They seem to fit my hand well and don't slip when I am cutting. The blade is sharp (wear cut gloves) and holds and edge well.
    I cannot believe the inexpensive price for this great knife. I have used this everyday for a month and it still is razor sharp. I will be buying more.
    This has some great versatility. Has a nice curve to it and really helps if you have bad wrists. I've been using this style for years and if you havent tried it, you gotta buy it!
    Nice inexpensive boning knife!! Mercer delivers with this curved blade knife! Great for fileting fish and even deboning small chickens and foul! Nice and comfortable handle!!!
