Rack of Lamb With Chilli-Mint Sauce

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Jewelies

Adapted from Delicious magazine. For Dave and I, we usually use 3 lamb racks with 4 cutlets on each and all the marinade and sauce (I don't halve it). Nice served with a sweet potato rosti or mash. Prep time includes 30 minutes marinating time.

'Mmm, good. Very good indeed. Mmm, restaurant quality,' were just a few of the comments from hubby tonight. Jules, we loved this. I made it for two, but did a full batch of sauce (photos of both included). My few changes were out of necessity. I forgot the garlic -- most unusual for me -- and only had dried mint and green chilies on hand. The rack had 9 cutlets, and 25 minutes in the oven gave a perfect result.
