Roast Rack of Lamb with Natural Jus

A perfect rack of lamb has always felt like a very romantic dinner entree for me.  I’m not quite sure why exactly, maybe it has something to do with the delicateness of the rack’s appearance, its dramatic presentation, and subtle gamy flavor.  This is a simple recipe with bold flavors and will be sure to deliver bold flavors to your Valentine’s Day dinner.
