Hints and tips

  • Lamb can be cooked to varying degrees of doneness. Change timings and core temperature to suit your liking.
  • This seasoning salt recipe is for more than you will need but it is great to have around for seasoning steak or vegetables.
  • Depending on the size of the lamb racks, this would yield a medium degree of doneness. If you have a food probe insert into the thickest part of the eye of the meat and set the
    core temperature to 50°C.
