Ingredients List

  • 1 rack of lamb (about 8 ribs), frenched
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon of rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of thyme, finely chopped
  • ¾ cup of breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard

This humble list of ingredients can create a heart-healthy dinner that’s simply delightful.


1. Begin this culinary adventure by preheating your oven to 400°F (200°C). Meanwhile, season the lamb with salt and freshly ground pepper.

  1. Heat the olive oil in a heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the lamb rack on all sides until nicely browned. This step assures a flavorful crust and locks in the juices.

  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the garlic, rosemary, thyme, and breadcrumbs. Stir the ingredients until they bear resemblance to an aromatic herb blanket for the lamb.

  3. Smear the browned lamb rack with Dijon mustard, which will act as the perfect glue to hold the breadcrumb mix. Then, press the herb-breadcrumb mixture onto the meat.

  4. Transfer the herb-crusted rack of lamb onto a baking dish and roast it in the oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until your desired doneness is achieved. Let it rest, slice, and serve.
