How to prepare a lamb loin from a rack of lamb

The loin of lamb is a tender and prized part of the animal. As it has no layer of fat for protection, it should be cooked carefully and served pink in the middle. You can either buy a loin of lamb as it is, or prepare it from a rack of lamb.

Method

1
Place the rack of lamb onto a chopping board. Using a knife, carefully cut around the loin of the lamb (the part of the meat attached to the bone) and begin to release it
2
Using your hands, carefully remove the loin from the bone
3
Using a sharp knife, trim the sinew and fat away from the loin of lamb
