“A delicious Moroccan-inspired rack of lamb. I created this for my anniversary, and it was divine. Serve with honey-glazed carrots and rosemary mashed potatoes. Ras el hanout is a traditional and complex Moroccan spice blend, and may be found in specialty grocery stores.” - by LotusX

"This was an excellent recipe for lamb chops. There are many recipes for the ras el hanout (many that require saffron - which I don't have). I took a basic recipe and modified it with spices I had on..." See more hand. This is what I used: Ras El Hanout alla Mark 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon 3 teaspoons ground cumin 2 teaspoons ground coriander 2 teaspoons ground ginger 2 teaspoons ground cardamom 1 teaspoon ground allspice 1 teaspoon ground cloves 1 teaspoon mace 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon dill 1 teaspoon ground black pepper 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt The cinnamon, cumin and red pepper are what are really required, everything else adds to the "complexity" of the flavor. The Shiraz honey reduction was very good (and easy to make) although it took about 20 minutes to reduce."
"This dish was simply outstanding. I made my own ras el hanout from (mostly) whole spices. Also, 145 degrees as an internal temperature is probably as well-done as you should cook rack of lamb. 130 deg..." See morerees is medium and 145 is more like medium-well. I'd suggest just cooking to 130 or so."
"This recipe was delicious - thank you so much for introducing me to this wonderful spice! I actually used boneless leg of lamb for a meatier cut, therefore changing the cooking directions accordingly ..." See moreand using a little more spice. I even had no trouble finding the spice at my local grocery store (I do live in a big city though)."
