“A great dish for Spring. Using the same skillet for browning the chops and cooking the vegetables results in light but rich tasting pan juices that are perfect for drizzling.”

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. Brush the lamb with 2 tablespoons of the oil and season with salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add one of the lamb racks, fat-side down; brown on all sides, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a roasting pan. Repeat with remaining rack. Reserve skillet with pan juices.
  3. Roast lamb until an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of the lamb and not touching bone registers 125F to 130F for medium-rare, 18 to 20 minutes.
  4. Add the remaining tablespoon oil to the skillet with pan juices and heat over medium-high heat. Add the bell pepper, scallion whites, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes.
  5. Add the broth, bring to a gentle simmer, reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook until the vegetables are tender, about 8 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat, stir in the scallion greens and marjoram, season to taste with salt and pepper, and cover to keep warm.
  7. Transfer the lamb to a cutting board, and let rest for 10 minutes. Slice into individual chops and serve with the vegetables and pan juices.
