Cover loosely with foil and allow to stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before roasting. Cook in the centre of a pre-heated oven. For a crispier crust remove the foil for the last 5 minutes.

Bought this for boxing day dinner,as I regularly buy a rack of lamb from the butchers counter at tesco Hythe colchester I exected this to be of the same quality. Unfortunately it was the wrong choice, it was mostly inedible as it was so tough and chewy and I was very embarrassed to have served it to my guests,this is the first item I have ever complained about which is why I am so disappointed.
