ROAST RACK OF LAMB WITH MINT
- Preheat oven to 475 degrees. In the bowl of a food processor, combine shallot, garlic, mustard, 3 tablespoons olive oil, and mint; season with salt and pepper. Pulse until a medium-textured paste forms, about 30 seconds; set aside.
- Heat a cast-iron skillet large enough to accommodate the half-rack of ribs, over medium-high heat. Add the remaining tablespoon olive oil. Season lamb with salt and pepper, and place in the skillet, fat side down. Sear meat on both sides until well browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat, and transfer the lamb to a clean surface.
- Spread the reserved mint paste on the meaty side of the lamb, and place the lamb in a shallow baking pan. Transfer to the oven, and roast until the lamb is medium rare, or until the internal temperature is 130 degrees. 18 to 22 minutes. Remove from the oven, and place lamb on a cutting board; let rest for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing. Slice between the bones, and serve.
ROASTED RACK OF LAMB WITH MINT PESTO
- Let the lamb come to room temperature for about 30 minutes before you are ready to roast. Season the lamb on all sides with salt and pepper, to taste.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Heat the oil in a large, heavy-bottomed skillet with a heatproof handle over medium-high heat. Put the rack into the pan, fat side down, and sear it until it is browned, about 2 to 3 minutes. Turn the rack over and sear the other side for 2 minutes. Put the pan into the oven, and roast the lamb until it is medium-rare, or until the internal temperature reaches 125 to 130 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer, about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the lamb from the oven, cover it with foil, and let it rest for about 10 minutes before slicing into chops. Serve with the Mint Pesto.
- Combine all of the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor. Process until the mixture is almost smooth. Taste and adjust the seasonings with salt and pepper, to taste. The pesto may be made 1 day ahead, covered and refrigerated. Bring the pesto to room temperature before serving.
RACK OF LAMB WITH MINT-BASIL PESTO
- Blend the mint, basil, nuts, cheese, lemon juice, garlic, 3/4 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper in a food processor until the herbs are finely chopped. With the machine running, gradually blend in 1/3 cup of oil until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Generously sprinkle the lamb racks with salt and pepper. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a grill pan or heavy large skillet over high heat. Place 1 lamb rack in the skillet and cook just until brown, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer the lamb rack meat side up on a heavy large baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining 2 lamb racks.
- Roast the lamb in the oven until cooked to desired doneness, about 20 minutes for medium-rare. Transfer the lamb racks to a work surface. Set aside for 10 minutes. Cut the lamb between the bones into single chops. Spread the pesto over 1 cut side of each chop. Arrange the chops, pesto side up, on plates or a platter, and serve.
- Do-Ahead Tip: The pesto and lamb racks may be prepared up to this point 1 day ahead. Cover the pesto and lamb separately and refrigerate. Allow extra time for the chilled lamb to roast.
- Alternately, the racks of lamb can be sliced then broiled before serving. To broil the lamb: Use 18 to 24 meaty single lamb rib chops (about 2 1/2 ounces each, from 3 racks of lamb). Preheat the broiler. Arrange the lamb chops in a single layer over 2 heavy baking sheets. Lightly brush the lamb chops with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Watching closely, broil the lamb chops 3 inches from the heat source until cooked to desired doneness, about 3 minutes per side for medium-rare. Spread the pesto over the chops. Arrange the chops pesto side up on plates or a platter, and serve.

ROAST RACK OF LAMB WITH MINT SAUCE
The lamb that we buy today hardly requires a typical English mint sauce (the puckery flavor was originally designed to cut through the stronger taste of mutton), but the combination is by now a traditional and still-welcome one. Buttered carrots and a watercress salad would complement the lamb nicely. Uncork a full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon or red Bordeaux.

RACK OF LAMB WITH CILANTRO- MINT SAUCE
We had something very similar to this at a restaurant here in Big Bear on our first date. It was absolutely incredible. My eyes rolled back in my head and I couldnt stop eating. It was served with garlic mashed potatoes or herbed white rice, and we had creme brulee for dessert with raspberries for dessert. ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!

- Heat your oven to 400 degrees. While the oven is heating up, chop the onions. I roughly chopped them into smallish chunks, you can chop them however you like. Then slice the baby potatoes in half. Place the onions and potatoes in a roasting pan and drizzle 1 tablespoons of olive oil over, and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Stir to evenly coat the potatoes and onions and arrange in the roasting pan leaving a space in the middle for the lamb.
- Next combine the garlic, shallot, lemon zest, and remaining salt, pepper, and olive oil in a small bowl. Then use your hands to spread this mixture all over the lamb, and place the lamb in the middle of the roasting pan.
- Place the lamb and potatoes in the oven and let cook for 30 minutes. Then reduce the heat to 350 degrees and cook for another 45 minutes to 60 minutes. I cooked a 1 pound cut of lamb and it reached 145 degrees (medium doneness) after cooking for 50 minutes at 350 degrees.
- While the lamb is roasting, prepare the mint sauce by simply mixing the chopping mint leaves, granulated sugar, salt, hot water, and red wine vinegar together.
