I usually prepare this Rack of Lamb menu during holiday like Easter Sunday, 4th of July or even Christmas holidays. However, side dishes that can go well with this Rack of Lamb will be mashed potato, roasted broccoli, roasted asparagus, or saute colors bell peppers and sweet yellow onion, all can go well with this big meal.

Special meal for Easter: Roasted Rack of Lamb by Pitsuda's Kitchen

Lamb meat usually smell unpleasant but the marinade sauce and the ingredient like rosemary and thyme will reduce the smell of the lamb meat while mustard and balsamic vinegar will give the salty and sour flavor to the meat and make the meat moist and tender meat by marinade for at least 1 to 2 hours. I serve with Roasted Baby Broccoli and Mashed Potato. Let's get busy in the kitchen with me ~ Happy Holiday!
