Ingredients

For the lamb chops:
For the yogurt:

Directions

For the lamb chops:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Over high heat, preheat a large skillet with cooking oil. Liberally season the racks of lamb with salt and fresh ground pepper. Place the meat in the pan and sear all sides over high heat until evenly browned. Place the racks on a sheet pan and place in the oven to finish cooking. See Chef's Note 1. For medium rare, about 8 minutes; medium, about 10 minutes; and well done, about 15 minutes. These are general guidelines but the cooking times will vary depending on the size of the rack.

After they are finished cooking in the oven, remove the racks and allow them to rest approximately 10 minutes. Cutting from the meat side of the rack, so that you can better visualize the chop size, cut each chop individually.

For the yogurt:

Place the yogurt, lime juice and garlic in a blender and puree on high speed until blended. While blending, slowly incorporate the mint and season with salt, cayenne, and cumin.

For assembly:

Liberally cover a nice serving platter with the yogurt sauce. Arrange the chops on the platter and decorate with extra mint leaves and pinches of paprika.

Cook's Note

The racks can be seared off ahead of time, chilled and later placed in the oven to finish cooking.
