Rating: Unrated 63
Start braising anywhere from 2 days to 2 hours before serving; as the meat stands in the rich sauce, the flavors have more time to develop.
Pepper-Crusted Lamb with Roasted Vegetables

Here's a bistro-style entrée that's easy to make using supermarket ingredients and the oven does most of the heavy lifting. While the broccolini and potatoes roast up to crispy perfection virtually unsupervised, you'll get to work coating lamb loin chops in crushed black peppercorns and giving them a good sear in a skillet. A quick pan sauce made with shallots and red wine ties everything together for a delicious and surprisingly simple meal.
