14 Days Dry-Aged Texel Rib Rack Of Lamb
Region: North Yorkshire Moors National Park, UK
Shelf Life: 6 Days
The Texel is a relative newcomer to these Isles, but have been a huge hit with chefs, butchers, and farmers alike. Thick set and tough, they can thrive anywhere, producing some of the most consistent lamb with an even covering of fat, and meat that is sweet and delicate. Often to be seen in larger flocks, occasionally nibbling on turnips and sugar beet, this lamb is a great all rounder, perfect for steaks, chops and roasting joints.
Tasting Notes: Delicate, Sweet, Rounded
Known as Carré d'Agneau in French cuisine and butchery textbooks, the Rib Rack of lamb is cut out at ninety degrees to the spine of the animal, leaving the ribs intact with the prized rib meat attached. The ribs are then French trimmed to leave clean bone at the end of each rib for maximum effect. More commonly simply cut into chops, the Rib Rack is a favourite of chefs and increasingly in demand.
