Crown Roast Of Lamb With Peas And New Potatoes
What You Need:
  • A crown roast of lamb, consisting of 16 to 18 chops and weighing about 4˝ pounds
  • 1 clove garlic, cut into tiny slivers (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon crushed dried rosemary
  • 16 to 18 peeled new potatoes, all about 1˝ inches in diameter
  • 3 cups cooked fresh or frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 6 to 8 sprigs of fresh mint

  • How To Cook:
    1. Preheat the oven to 475°F. With the point of a small, sharp knife make small incisions a few inches apart in the meaty portions of the lamb, and insert in them the slivers of garlic, if you are using it.

    2. Combine the salt, pepper and rosemary, and with your fingers pat the mixture all over the bottom and sides of the crown. To help keep its shape, stuff the crown with a crumpled sheet of foil and wrap the ends of the chop bones in strips of foil to prevent them from charring and snapping off.

    3. Place the crown of lamb on a small rack set in a shallow roasting pan just large enough to hold it comfortably and roast it in the center of the oven for about 20 minutes.

    4. Then turn down the heat to 400°F and surround the crown with the new potatoes, basting them with the pan drippings and sprinkling them lightly with salt.

    5. Continue to roast the lamb (basting the lamb is unnecessary, but baste the potatoes every 15 minutes or so) for about an hour to an hour and 15 minutes, depending upon how well done you prefer your lamb.

    6. Ideally, it should be served when it is still somewhat pink, and should register 140°F to 150°F on a meat thermometer. When the crown is done, carefully transfer it to a large circular platter,remove the foil and let the lamb rest about 10 minutes to make carving easier.

    7. Meanwhile, combine the peas with the melted butter and season them with as much salt as is necessary. Fill the hollow of the crown with as many of the peas as it will hold and serve any remaining peas separately.

    8. Put a paper frill on the end of each chop bone and surround the crown with the roasted potatoes. Garnish with mint and serve at once.

    9. To carve the lamb, insert a large fork in the side of the crown to steady it and with a large, sharp knife cut down through each rib to detach the chops. Two rib chops per person is a customary portion.
