Rosemary Dijon Rack of Lamb

This roasted rack of lamb recipe is flavorful, easy, and delicious.  Use extra strong German mustard if you like it spicier or with more tang.  “Frenching” means to cut the meat away from the rib or chop and expose the bone.  Buy the lamb rack already frenched from the grocery store and take that work out of the equation.

Things In My Kitchen:

  • Roasting Pan: Perfect for keeping the meat above the dripping fat and to circulate air around the meat.
