2 (8-rib) lamb rib roasts (1 1/2 pounds each), trimmed
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 cups French bread cubes
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup stone-ground mustard


Sprinkle lamb with salt and pepper. Cook lamb in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until browned.

Process bread and next 5 ingredients in a food processor until coarsely ground. Brush mustard over lamb; press breadcrumb mixture over mustard. Place lamb on a lightly greased rack in a broiler pan.

Bake at 400° for 40 to 45 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 145°.

Remove from oven, and let stand 5 minutes or until thermometer registers 150° (medium-rare).
