This was the first time that I used Ras el Hanout . I used 2 lamb shanks and browned the meat then slow cooked it with the wine and honey. Delicious!-21 Mar 2017

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 hand. This is what I used:Ras El Hanout alla Mark3 teaspoons ground cinnamon3 teaspoons ground cumin2 teaspoons ground coriander2 teaspoons ground ginger2 teaspoons ground cardamom1 teaspoon ground allspice1 teaspoon ground cloves1 teaspoon mace1 teaspoon cayenne pepper1 teaspoon garlic powder1 teaspoon dill1 teaspoon ground black pepper1 teaspoon Kosher SaltThe 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.-27 Jan 2007

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 degrees is medium and 145 is more like medium-well. I'd suggest just cooking to 130 or so.-12 Feb 2006
