- 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for sauteing
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1 rack of lamb, frenched
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary leaves
- 1 large clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup white wine
- 1 onion, sliced
- Kosher salt
- 1 cup chicken stock or broth, divided
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed (about 16 spears)
- 1 pound kale, cleaned and cut into bite size pieces
- 1/2 cup red wine
- Emeril's Original Essence
In a dish large enough to hold the lamb chops in a single layer, combine 1/3 cup olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt, pepper, and Essence. Add the lamb, turn to coat with the marinade and set aside for about 15 minutes at room temperature or up to 2 hours in the refrigerator.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large heavy ovenproof skillet over high heat. Sear the rack of lamb for 1 to 2 minutes on all sides. Set aside for a few minutes, and cover the ends of the bones with foil to prevent charring. Arrange the rack bone-side down in the skillet. Roast the lamb for 12 to 18 minutes, depending on the degree of doneness you want, checking the temperature with a meat thermometer. Let it rest for 5 to 7 minutes, loosely covered.
Combine water, white wine, 1/2 cup chicken stock, the 1/2 chopped onion, and 1 teaspoon salt in a large saucepan. Bring to a simmer and add asparagus. Cook for 1 minute and then top with kale. Add 2 tablespoons of butter and stir to combine and continue cooking until asparagus are tender. Remove from heat and keep warm.
Return the skillet to medium heat. Add the remaining 1/2 cup chicken stock and red wine. Scrape up the browned bits off the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon and simmer until the mixture is reduced to a glaze, about 4 minutes. Add the remaining butter and swirl to thicken.
Serve 2 lamb chops per person. Drizzle with sauce and serve with the asparagus and kale on the side.
