RACK OF LAMB WITH MUSTARD AND HERBS

a simple way to serve a fancy spring staple

This recipe is sooooo good! I found it on the internet years ago and have been using it to trick my friends into thinking I’m a gourmet chef ever since. Seriously, this recipe makes me feel like a pro and it will you too! 

A RACK OF LAMB

There’s something about a rack of lamb that screams, “I am fancy, damn it!” Maybe it’s the presentation, or the fact that the price per pound makes it a splurge. Whatever the reason, a grilled rack of lamb looks beautiful, tastes delicious and definitely stands out.

BUY IT “FRENCHED”

This is important. Unless you are a skilled chef or meat cutter, you will want to request a “Frenched” Rack of Lamb. This means the excess fat and connective tissue has already been removed. And it means cutting and serving the lamb as chops, will be extremely easy. Most grocery chains sell them like this, but if you go to a butcher, be sure this is what you request.

A MUSTARD, HERB, FAT TRIFECTA

Don’t be shy about piling on the mustard and herbs. Most of the coating is going to drip off with the fat on the grill, so you want to really lather it on to keep the flavor. Which brings me to another point, don’t trim off too much fat. Think of fat like it is the butter of meat. It’s a natural coating that browns the outside and penetrates everything beneath it to make it tender. Yes, when grilling, fat is your friend!
