Rosemary-Dijon Crusted Rack of Lamb
Created by Rori Trovato
This rack of lamb is itself cooked on a makeshift rack of carrots and potatoes, and encrusted in Dijon mustard and rosemary.
Servings: Serves 2
Ingredients
  • 1 rack of lamb , trimmed (French-style)
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 6 or 7 baby potatoes
  • 2 to 8 baby carrots or 4 large carrots (peeled, scrubbed, and quartered)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider
Directions
Preheat oven to 400°. Rub lamb generously with salt and pepper and brush with mustard. Pat with rosemary.

Place potatoes in a small baking pan and toss with olive oil; add salt and pepper to taste. Bake 10 minutes. Set lamb upright in the same pan and add carrots. Roast 25 to 30 minutes for medium-rare (internal temperature should read 145°). Remove lamb from pan and let rest 10 minutes before carving. Slice between each rib to make 8 or 9 small chops.

Remove potatoes. Combine honey and apple cider and toss with carrots in pan. Serve vegetables with lamb.
