Herbed Rack of Lamb

 Herbed Rack of Lamb
We've raised sheep for years, so lamb has been a staple entree in our house as well as a favorite to serve when company comes. We do our own butchering and can cut the meat any way, but we've found the rack yields a perfect amount of meat for just the two of us. -Margery Bryan, Moses Lake, Washington
