Herb Crusted Rack of Lamb

Wow! This was really good and I completely made it up! Here's how to do it. You will need 2 racks of lamb. We share a rack which is 8 ribs. I like to cook two racks and have 1 to reheat another night. Some people can eat an entire rack but you decide. I used to but I see no point now.
S&P and sear racks over medium heat for about 3 minutes, til light brown and easily lifts from the pan. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
In a bowl mix finely chopped 1 Tbl Fresh Mint and 1/2 Tbl Fresh Parsley. Add 1 Clove of Pressed Garlic, 1 Small Shallot Bulb minced, 2 Tbl Fresh Bread Crumbs, 1 Tbl soften Butter, and S&P.

Top seared racks with all of the bread crumb mixture.
Preheat oven to 375F.

Once ready to cook, using an oven proof skillet, place lamb in hot oven and roast for 20 minutes for medium rare or 25 minutes for medium doneness.

Let rest for 5 minutes, carve, and serve. Melt in your mouth delicious!

Sam's Club is selling the racks of lamb in 2 packs again for under $20.

I should add, when they carry lamb it is most always New Zealand.
