Ingredients

Mint-Orange Liqueur Sauce: 
  • 1/2 cup orange liqueur (recommended: Grand Marnier)
  • 3 sprigs fresh mint, leaves chopped
  • 1/4 cup beef stock
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Lamb:
  • 2 racks of lamb, frenched and cut into chops
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, leaves chopped
Asparagus:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 bunches white asparagus, bottoms trimmed
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

For the sauce: In saute pan add the orange liqueur. Pour the alcohol into the pan and carefully ignite with a match or click lighter. Return the pan to the stove top over medium-high heat and gently swirl to reduce the flames. Add the mint and beef stock and reduce by half. Finish the sauce with the butter and season with salt and pepper. Hold warm. For the lamb: Preheat the oven to broil. 

Sprinkle the lamb with salt, pepper and rosemary. Broil the lamb 2 minutes per side for medium-rare. Remove and let rest 5 minutes under foil . 

While the lamb is resting, start the asparagus: Heat a saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the butter, olive oil and asparagus and saute until the asparagus is al dente, about 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. 

To serve, place 2 to 3 lamb chops per plate, drizzle with the sauce and garnish with the asparagus.
