Recipe courtesy of chef Michael Schulson

  • Servings: 2
Mongolian Lamb Chops


  • 1 1/4 cups plus 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon crystallized ginger, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon cracked juniper berries
  • Coarse salt
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese mustard
  • 1/4 cup plum wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 ten-ounce rack of lamb, preferably New Zealand
  • 3 baby bok choy, trimmed
  • 3 1/8-inch-thick bias-cut slices red Thai chile


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a small skillet, heat 1 cup oil and 1 teaspoon butter over medium-high heat. Add breadcrumbs and cook, stirring, until golden brown, about 7 minutes. Transfer breadcrumbs to a paper-towel-lined plate to cool. Transfer breadcrumbs to a small bowl; stir in 1 teaspoon ginger, juniper berries, and 1/2 teaspoon salt; set aside.

  2. In a small bowl, mix together mustard and plum wine vinegar; let stand 10 minutes. Add remaining 2 tablespoons ginger and rice vinegar and mix until smooth; set aside.

  3. Heat 1/4 cup oil and remaining teaspoon butter in a large oven-proof skillet over high heat. Sear the lamb on all sides until it is golden brown, about 4 minutes per side. Remove lamb from the skillet, coat with half of the mustard mixture and breadcrumbs. Return to skillet and transfer to oven and cook for 7 minutes for medium.

  4. Meanwhile, heat remaining tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add bok choy and chile; season with salt. Cook until tender, about 2 minutes. Remove lamb from oven and serve bok choy and remaining mustard.
