  Roast Rack of Lamb With a Rosemary-Parmesan Crust

The Chef
Laurent Tourondel of BLT Steak

Servings
Serves 6

Ingredients
1 stick unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
1 cup bread crumbs, preferably panko
1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 teaspoons chopped rosemary
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 8-rib racks of lamb,
trimmed
4 tablespoons olive oil
5 cloves garlic, crushed
3 sprigs thyme

Cooking Instructions
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a small bowl, stir together butter, bread crumbs, Parmigiano-Reggiano, onion, and rosemary, until they come together to form a ball. Season with salt and pepper, and set aside.

Brush the racks of lamb with oil, and season with salt and pepper. Set a sauté pan over medium heat, and add 2 tablespoons olive oil, garlic, and thyme. Sear the lamb, one rack at a time, for 1 minute per side or until golden brown, and transfer to a baking sheet. Roast the racks for 10 minutes, reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees, and continue cooking until the lamb’s internal temperature reaches 130 degrees (medium-rare; start check-ing after 5 minutes at 350 degrees).

Preheat broiler.

Transfer the racks of lamb to a work surface, and allow to rest for 5 minutes before coating the meat with the breadcrumb mixture. Broil the racks for a few minutes, watching carefully, until the crust turns golden brown.
