Crumb-Crusted Rack of Lamb
Special occasions call for big, festive flavors. Lamb answers the call.
Why This Recipe Works
To dress up lamb for the holidays, we added a flavorful, crispy lemon-and-garlic crumb crust. Dijon mustard did double duty, helping the crumbs adhere while adding tangy flavor. Trimming all but a thin layer of the fat and searing the lamb racks before coating them with the crumb mixture helped minimize the gamy flavor. Roasting the lamb to a doneness level of medium meant beautiful rosy-pink color throughout and tender, juicy meat.
