  • 6 ounces fingerling potatoes and/or tiny Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon snipped fresh tarragon or ¼ teaspoon dried tarragon, crushed
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 lamb rib chops, cut 1-inch thick and, if desired, frenched (about 1 pound total)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons cooking oil
  • ⅓ cup Riesling wine
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Halve any large potatoes to make potatoes of similar size. In a small saucepan, cook potatoes in a small amount of lightly salted boiling water for 10 to 13 minutes or just until tender. Drain well and set aside. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine ginger, tarragon and ⅛ teaspoon pepper; set aside.
  2. Trim fat from chops; sprinkle with salt and ⅛ teaspoon pepper. Heat a large skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add chops and potatoes to skillet. Cook for 9 to 11 minutes or until chops are medium doneness (160°F), turning chops once halfway through cooking time and turning potatoes occasionally to brown evenly. Remove chops and potatoes from skillet; cover with foil and keep warm.
  3. Remove skillet from heat. Drain off fat. For sauce, carefully pour wine into skillet; return to heat and stir to scrape up any browned bits. Add ginger mixture. Simmer and stir about 2 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half. Stir in mustard. Return to a simmer.
  4. Place chops and potatoes on 2 warm serving plates and top with the sauce.
