We had something very similar to this at a restaurant here in Big Bear on our first date. It was absolutely incredible. My eyes rolled back in my head and I couldnt stop eating. It was served with garlic mashed potatoes or herbed white rice, and we had creme brulee for dessert with raspberries for dessert. ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!

As you can see, I had to deviate a little due to a shortage of lamb racks at the local grocer. I also prepped a little differently. I had originally intended to stick as closely to the recipe as possible, however once I blended the 'sauce' I found it a little to strong tasting to just leave and then pour on at the end, so I apologise for the deviation here. I decided to pour the sauce over the 'rack' as a marinade and then went on to cook for the right amount of time. I'm really happy that I did, as the cutlets came out with a beautifully flavoured crust and the cooked down sauce was divine. This meal was a real pleasure to eat and I will most certainly use this again in the same capacity. Thank you for sharing.
