Lamb Perfection!

I know, I seem to be in a lamb fixation right now, but I couldn't not take a photo of what I consider to be the finest piece of lamb I have ever cooked acidentally. This is the other 3 cutlet portion of the lamb rack I made with Stephanie's excellent mustard marinade.
I threw this in the oven as I was writing the Utensibility meme below, and forgot to take notice of the time. I then forgot about the time and rushed back in to the kitchen because of the meaty smell wafting through the house. The mustard crust was dark and dry and I assumed I've totally overcooked the meat. Bah - there's nothing worse than well-done lamb.
But then, cutting into the first chop. Whoa! Incredible! It looked like lamb you see in fancy recipe books!
Extremely happy with this one. Only wish I could replicate it. I have no idea how long I cooked it!


  • Oh that's torture. It looks so goooood. Esp that caramalised crispy fatty skin... ooh...

  • Great photo, Niki. If it tasted even half as good as it looks... yum!
    By the way, I added an index to my site today. I needed that push. Thanks.

  • Gwenda - thanks! And all created by accident!

    Nic - thank you. It tasted excellent. And I've checked out your index. Extremely impressive!

  • That looks divine I am torn between making this for dinner this evening or a comforting seafood chowder - which I am still seeking a good recipe for.

  • Niki, That looks sensational! I once made a mac and cheese that I still consider one of my best creations ever. Problem is, I had thrown in a whole bunch of leftover cheese and kind of made up all the proportions. NO idea what I did that time. If only I could replicate it...

  • Lushlife - I would love a good seafood chowder. It's perfect weather for it down here right now. 13 degrees and raining outside, :-(

    Caryn - It's amazing, isn't it how the best things are so often those done my accident! So annoying, too!
