Easy Recipe for Rack of Lamb:

Ingredients—

1 rack of lamb (typically around 1-2 lbs)

Kosher salt

Fresh cracked pepper 

Fresh bunch of rosemary

Fresh bunch of thyme

Fresh chives 

Mayo 

Stoneground mustard 

Directions–

Pre-heat your oven to 475 degrees F.  On a large baking pan, line with parchment paper and place your rack of lamb on it. Add a dash of your salt and pepper to every surface of your lamb. In a small mixing bowl, mix about a table spoon of mayo, a tablespoon of your stoneground mustard. Freshly chop approximately 1-2 tablespoons of your herbs and mix well with your may/mustard mix. Keep in mind that rosemary is very strong so be careful how much you use. 

Using a spatula, spread your mixture all over your rack of lamb. You are looking for a even coat around the meat. Bake for approximately 10 minutes. Then, drop the temp to around 400 degrees F and bake another 10-12 minutes. Immediately remove from oven and allow to rest for another 10 minutes. Cut and serve on a large platter and garnish with any leftover herbs to impress.
