Reader recipe: Roast NZ lamb racks with mint crust
( SERVES 4 )
This is my go to recipe from bite, it's easy, quick & very tasty my family love this! I can throw it with either a spinach-kumara or potato mash & broccoli & carrots.
- Heat oven to 200 degC. Halve lamb racks so you have four portions. Season meat with salt and pepper.
- Spread lamb evenly with mustard, leaving the bones clean. Press chopped mint firmly on to meat to form a crust. Place racks in a low- sided roasting dish. Drizzle with a little oil and roast for 15 minutes for medium-rare.
- Remove to rest and keep warm for 10 minutes before serving. Serve half a rack per person with mashed potatoes and a green vegetable, such as beans.
