LET’S GET COOKING
Note: For everything to be ready around the same time, you'll want to first season your potatoes and have them ready to go into the oven, then sear and season your lamb rack. Put both into the oven at the same time so that when you're ready to carve the lamb into chops, your potatoes are just coming out of the oven!
For The Potatoes:
Heat oven to 400° degrees F.
Cut baby potatoes into halves or quarters.
Lay potatoes on an aluminum foil lined baking sheet. Season with olive oil, minced garlic, thyme and Casa M Spice Co® Chain Reaction. Mix together.
Bake for 30 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender.
For The Lamb Rack:
Heat oven to 400° degrees F.
In a small bowl combine panko bread crumbs, rosemary and parsley. Mix, then set aside.
Season lamb rack on both sides thoroughly with Casa M Spice Co® Good Shepherd®.
In a large grill pan or cast-iron pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add lamb rack, fattier side down and cook for 1-2 minutes to sear. Flip lamb over and cook for an additional minute. Remove from heat.
Spread Dijon mustard over fattier side of the lamb rack and top with the breadcrumb mixture pressing down lightly to adhere mixture to the mustard.
Roast the lamb rack at 400° degrees F for about 20 minutes for rare or 24 minutes for medium. Once it’s done, let it rest for about 5 minutes on a cutting board.
Cut into lamb chops and serve.
Tip: You can prep the lamb ahead of time. Season and sear the lamb (steps 7 & 8), refrigerate and continue when you are ready. Add another 5 minutes to compensate for the lamb having been refrigerated. Same with the potatoes! Prep and bake when ready for about 40 minutes instead.
