Thanks Bergy for another great recipe! I added a small sprig of rosemerry, but other than that kept to your recipe. This is one I will be making again. sams
This one will go into my favourite lamb recipes cookbook Bergy. It's so simple and so delicious. I loved the flavour of the dijon mustard and tarragon. Our small lamb rack (about 1 1/2 lbs)was done to our liking in about 35 minutes total.
