Rack Of Lamb With Mustard Seed Crust
Yield: 4 Servings

1/4 lb (1 stick) unsalted butter
2 egg yolks
1/2 c bread crumbs
2 tb dried rosemary
1 tb mustard seeds
1/3 c Dijon mustard
1 ts salt
1 ts cracked black pepper
2 racks of lamb, 8 ribs ea (4 chops per person)
2 tb olive oil

Well in advance (anywhere from 2 hours to a week) of making the
lamb, combine the butter, yolks, bread crumbs, rosemary, mustard
seed and Dijon mustard in the bowl of a food processor and pulse
until thoroughly mixed. Line a loaf pan with plastic wrap. Using
a spatula, spoon the mustard crust mixture into the pan, smooth
the surface, and place in the refrigerator. Allow to chill until

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees.

Season the lamb with the salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a
heavy skillet over medium heat for 2 minutes. Place the racks, meat
side down, in the skillet, and brown for 2 to 3 minutes to a crispy
brown coating. Turn over. Cook 1 minute more on the bone side.
Remove from the saute pan or skillet, and place in a roasting pan.
Place the racks in the oven and cook 8 to 10 minutes for medium

While the lamb is roasting, remove the mustard crust by lifting
the plastic wrap out of the loaf pan. You should now have a slab
of seasoned mustard crust. Cut the loaf of herb butter into 1/2
inch thick slices. Refrigerate them until the lamb has cooked for
8 to 10 minutes. Remove the lamb from the oven, lay the slabs of
seasoned mustard crust on the meat side of the lamb, and press the
butter with your finger tips to help it to adhere to the meat.
Return the lamb to the oven for 5 minutes more to allow the butter
to form a crust. Remove the racks from the oven and allow to cool
for 5 minutes before slicing into individual chops or 4 rib rack
