Ingredients

For the Rack of Lamb

1 American Lamb Rack; about 2-3 pounds; 8 chops

kosher salt; to taste

fresh ground black pepper; to taste

1 tsp olive oil

2 cloves garlic; minced

1/4 cup whole grain mustard

For the Pantry Smashed Potatoes

4 Yukon Gold potatoes; skin on

1 6.4 ounce envelope instant mashed potatoes, prepared according to package instructions

1 cup milk

3 tbsp butter

For the Caramelized Onion Peas with Herbs

1 medium onion; sliced

1 tbsp butter

1 tbsp olive oil

1 16-ounce bag of frozen peas

1/2 cup chopped tender herbs of your choice

salt and pepper; to taste

Directions

For the Rack of Lamb

1Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Season the lamb generously with salt and pepper.

2In a large oven-safe skillet, like cast iron, brown the lamb on all sides in the olive oil, roughly 5-7 minutes.

3Spread the mustard and minced garlic all over the lamb. Place the lamb in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, then turn the broiler on. Broil the lamb 3-4 minutes or until the mustard is golden brown and caramelized.

4Remove from oven and rest before slicing.

For the Pantry Smashed Potatoes

1Slice the 3-4 Yukon golds (or whatever variety you have on hand) into 3-4 pieces each.

2Cover with water in a medium-sized sauce pan and bring to a boil for roughly 20 minutes. Reserve the starchy water to cook your instant potatoes according to the package instructions.

3After the instant potatoes are cooked, combine all potatoes along with milk and butter, and smash them.

For the Caramelized Onion Peas with Herbs

1Heat a skillet over medium heat and sauté the onions in the butter and olive oil until they are caramelized, about 10-15 minutes.

2Add the peas and cook until they are tender and heated through. Finish with any herbs you have on hand.
