I love lamb, cooked many ways; but, I do not like lamb that is served with the traditional lamb jelly. Some things should not go with such a beautiful piece of meat and this is one of them. —ChezUs

This sounds so delicious. I love mustard, shallots and lamb together and like your approach to using mint. Great flavor combination!
