Mustard Coating and Marinade for Roast or Broiled Lamb and Pork

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.

    I was looking for this recipe! Used it on a leg of lamb. My hubby loved it. Only thing I did different was I used my bullet to mix it up, it worked great!

    Very easy and very good -- thank you. I tried it on rack of lamb last night, got rave reviews. I minced the garlic *with salt* prior to mashing into paste, much faster I think. I used all dried herbs, rubbing between fingers to squash them before adding to garlic mix. Used a fork to whisk together -- it was thick enough to cling to underside without dripping off, but liquid enough to be a marinade :) Served with whole wheat rice pilaf & roasted veggies. A keeper -- thank you!

    WOW! We used this on a pork roast & grilled it. Excellent herb flavor that's not over-powering. I supplemented some dijon bbq sauce as I didn't have more than 1 T of mustard. Will make this again - soon!

    This was an outstanding flavour with a minimum of fuss. The rack of lamb was so moist and just tasted so different. I had fresh rosemary and chopped that up. Also dried thyme not ground. I will certainly make this again... Thank U S Chris
