An impressive presentation that is surprisingly easy to prepare at home, the rack offers versatility for entertaining. The rack of lamb is an icon of fine dining menus across the country. Serving a rack of lamb makes it easy to have an effortless, restaurant quality meal at home. There are 8 chops per rack and an American Rack weighs about 2 pounds.
Frenched Rack: a few inches of meat is removed from the end of the bones

Traditional lamb chops come from the rib, loin, sirloin and shoulder of the animal. Shoulder chops (also called blade and arm chops) require a shorter amount of cooking time than other cuts, making them an economical and flavorful choice for quick and easy meals.
