  • Mix breadcrumbs, 1/2 teaspoon oil, 1/2 teaspoon rosemary, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in a big ovenproof frying pan over medium-high heat. Add lamb, meat-side down, and sear up until browned, about 1 1/2 minutes. Turn it over and spread 2 teaspoons mustard over the meat. Sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture over the mustard. Transfer the pan to the oven and roast up until an instant-read thermometer placed in the center signs up 140 degrees F for medium-rare, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer the lamb to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.

  • Return the pan to medium-high heat (take care: the deal with will still be hot). Include shallots, the staying 1/2 teaspoon rosemary, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; cook, stirring continuously, up until beginning to soften, about 1 minute. Stir in lentils, apple, celery, broth (or water), vinegar and the staying 1 teaspoon mustard. Cook at a vibrant simmer, stirring occasionally, up until somewhat reduced and the celery and apple start to soften, about 4 minutes. Cut the lamb into 8 chops and serve over the lentils.

Tips

Ingredient notes: For 4 individuals, search for a rack of lamb with 8 chops. If you find one that’s been “Frenched” (meat removed at the suggestions, exposing the bone) and cut, you’ll only require a 1-pound rack. Otherwise, ask your butcher to prepare a 1 1/2- pound rack for you.

We like Ian’s brand of coarse dry whole-wheat breadcrumbs, identified “Panko breadcrumbs.” Discover them in the natural-foods area of large grocery stores. To make your own breadcrumbs, trim crusts from company sandwich bread. Tear the bread into pieces and procedure in a food processor till coarse crumbs form. (To make great dry breadcrumbs, procedure up until extremely fine.) Spread on a baking sheet and bake at 250 ° F up until dry, about 10 to 15 minutes. One piece of bread makes about 1/3 cup dry breadcrumbs.
