Valentine’s Day Herb Crusted Rack of Lamb
|Rack lamb||1 Small, drenched|
|Olive oil||2 Tablespoon|
|Plain bread crumbs||1 Cup (16 tbs) (Fresh Ones)|
|Herbes de provence||1 Teaspoon|
|Chopped garlic||1 Teaspoon|
|Olive oil||3 Tablespoon|
|Dijon mustard||2 Tablespoon|
|Olive oil spray||1|
|Salt||To Taste (To Season)|
|Pepper||To Taste (To Season)|
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil. Season each side of the rack of lamb with salt and pepper and sear the lamb on all sides. Let cool. Combine bread crumbs, herbes de Provence, garlic and olive oil. Brush the rack of lamb with Dijon mustard and coat with the bread crumb mixture to form a crust. Put the rack of lamb in a pan sprayed with oil. Dress (spray) lamb with olive oil so that the lamb does not burn.
Roast 20 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for medium-rare. Let the lamb rest for 10 minutes. Slice and serve. Optionally, deglaze the roasting pan with ½ cup red wine to create a sauce and drizzle over the lamb.
