"I love how the sweet, herbaceous crust works with the subtly gamey meat. Lamb is obviously a popular Easter menu option and this mint-crusted rack of lamb is perfect for the occasion." — Chef John

Delicious. Lamb came out juicy, tender and super flavorful. Would definitely make again!
Delicious entry. But too much work.To make the marinade simpler just mix in mint, garlic, lemon juice, pepper and yoghurt . Plus Salt and(or) honey ( 7 extra seasonings) to taste. marinate overnight for better results and bake half an hour before serving!
This is very good. The mint and mustard go very well together, and the vinagret sause was a fantastic complement to lamb. I found I needed to cook the lamb about fifteen minutes longer to get it o a very good medium rare.
Excellent! I followed recipe and it was delicious! I will make this again for sure.
Best lamb ever!
You don't even need to do the vinaigrette after cooking its so good! The lamb was a perfect medium rare at 20 minutes. Amazing!
I made this about a month ago, and I'm making it again today. This was a wonderful recipe! I had to cook the lamb for an additional 15 minutes for medium rare. I would not skip the vinaigrette, it makes this recipe fantastic!
