Sous Vide Herb Crusted Rack of Lamb

Sous vide herb crusted rack of lamb is what dreams are made of. These lamb chops are cooked to perfection using a sous vide, then covered in a delicious herbed panko mixture. The result? A masterful tasting dish that you can whip out for a romantic dinner, the holidays or a casual Sunday.

Time and Temperature

Through loads of experimentation, we’ve found that cooking the rack of lamb at 58C/138F for 2 hours is the perfect combo. Leaving the lamb in for 2 hours breaks down the connective tissue (collagen), which results in an extremely tender rack. Also, cooking them at a temperature of 138F is the sweet spot for a succulent but firm lamb.  Just make sure you have a reliable sous vide that accurately regulates the temperature of the bath or your results may vary (check out the Anova or Joule).
