(NC)—An economical and spectacular alternative to racks of lamb or veal. Ask your butcher to leave the rib bones a decent length for an arresting presentation. This cut has the optimum combination of taste, texture and fat content.
Serves 6 to 8
1 tbsp coarse black pepper 15 mL
1 tbsp chopped rosemary 15 mL
1 tbsp Dijon mustard 15 mL
3 garlic cloves
1 rack of pork
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
1 cup white wine 250 mL
1 cup veal stock 250 mL
1 cup 35% cream 250 mL
2 tbsp grain mustard 30 mL
• Pre-heat oven to 325ºF (160ºC).
• Combine pepper, rosemary and mustard to make a paste.
• Cut garlic into slivers, and, using a sharp knife to make incisions, insert into pork at even intervals.
• In a large oven-proof skillet or heavy roasting pan, brown pork in olive oil. Spread rosemary paste over fat side of rack and sprinkle with sea salt.
• Roast for about 90 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 150ºF (65ºC) on a meat thermometer. Remove and allow to rest for at least 10 minutes.
• Pour white wine and veal stock into pan, stirring well with a wooden spoon to incorporate all the brown bits. Bring to a boil and reduce sauce to about one cup.
• Reduce heat and whisk in cream and mustard. Continue cooking until thickened slightly.
• Slice meat between bones and pour sauce over.
