Mustard crusted Lamb

This was my Valentine meal...for one as Mr D was away...sob sob...

However this serves 2

1 x French trimmed rack of lamb
A large handful of breadcrumbs
1 1/2 tbsp flat leaf parsley chopped
1 tsp rosemary chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to season
1 1/2 tbsp wholegrain mustard

Mix together the breadcrumbs, parsley, rosemary and olive oil. Season well.

Pre heat the oven to 220C. 

Season lamb with salt and pepper. Put an oven proof pan on the hob with a bit of oil and when hot, but not smoking, brown the lamb on both sides. 

Once browned, spread the meaty side with a thin layer of mustard. put the breadcrumb mixture ontop of the mustard and press lightly so that it sticks to the lamb.

Roast the lamb for 10-12minutes if you like it pink like me (about 15-18 minutes for more well done) then set it to rest for 5/8 minutes before slicing and serving.

I had mine with a warm bean and spinach salad (fry coooked beans in garlic and onions then adding the spinach)

  1. Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I
    need some guidance from an established blog. Is it hard to set up
    your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about
    making my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thanks

    My blog post - quality saffron

    1. Hi there,

      it is very simple to set up your own blog... I do this as a hobby and therefore when i have the time I post my write ups and update my page when I feel it is needed.

      Firstly you need to look at which website you want to use to host your page...I use Blogger however I am told Wordpress is very easy to use and has 'better' themes etc...sadly i did not know this until after I had set up.

      I am useless with technology (to politely put it) and manage fine. I actually enjoy it, it's never a chore and seemingly figure things out with either the help of google or other bloggers (seemingly we're friendly people)...

      My only suggestions are... don't worry about what you write too much, you're first blog should be something you LOVE and are passionate about, if it interests you it probably will 100's of people. I seem to get lots of emails saying how much they enjoy my writing style, I write as I would speak and therefore don't spend hours on correcting etc, Simply put I read it over a few times and then 'publish'. It's not always perfect but i'm no Charles Dickens...

      Don't always worry about your picture quality at the time of shooting, I don't like disturbing people in restaurants with flashes. Therefore flash off, elbows tucked in on table to steady your pose and click... you can fiddle around with the image later.

      Lastly - HAVE FUN! I love writing this blog so much, have a scout around and see what others write about to gain some ideas.
