Mustard Coating and Marinade for Roast or Broiled Lamb and Pork

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Simply Chris

This is another great marinade from Julia Child's The Way to Cook. I use this for rack of lamb, lamp chops, lamb kabobs and also for roast pork loin. The pan drippings from the roast when using this marinade make the basis for fantastic gravy. Roast Pork Loin with this marinade has become the standard Christmas Dinner in our house ever since I found this recipe about 15 years ago.

Outstanding. I marinated a butterflied leg of lamb for about six hours and then grilled it. I used fresh rosemary and thyme.this would probably be good on chicken, also.
