  • Oven


  • 3 pounds Rack of veal 1.5kg
  • 2 carrots big
  • 2 shallots
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1.5 pound small potatoes
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • 2 tbsp bread crumbs
  • 2 tsp mustard, old fashioned
  • 2 tsp mustard, regular
  • 2 tsp honey


  • Preheat the oven to 425F.
  • Chop some shallots, mince the garlic cloves.
  • Wash the potatoes and carrots. Peel the carrots and slice them (about 1/4 to half of an inch thickness) and half the potatoes if there are too big (bigger than 2 inch ball).
  • In a large 12 x 16 oven dish, place the shallots, garlic, carrots and potatoes, pour the olive oil, salt and pepper, toss well.
  • Pour the vegetable broth on them.
  • Take your veal rack, pat it dry with some paper towel if necessary, and season with salt, pepper, and some olive oil. Make a nest in the middle of the vegetables and place your meat there.
  • Cook in the oven for 75 minutes.
  • During that time, prepare the honey mustard crust: In a small bowl, mix together the 2 mustards, the honey and the crumbs. It will look like a paste.
  • After the hour and 15 minutes, take the meat out the oven. Place the veal on a chopping board – be careful it’s hot – and spread the honey-mustard paste evenly on the rack.
  • Put the meat back in the oven dish and back in the oven for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Using a meat thermometer, check that it reads 160F (71F).
