Season racks very well with salt and pepper on all sides including ends. In a cast iron pan over medium-high heat, add oil. When very hot, sear racks on all sides until nicely browned. Transfer to a 425ºF oven fat side down and roast for 8 minutes.
Meanwhile, in the jar of a blender combine breadcrumbs, parsley, parmesan cheese, Herbes de Provence, garlic and oil. Process until the mixture is moist.
After 8 minutes, remove the racks of lamb and immediately brush on Dijon mustard. Then coat racks in the herb crust mixture. Transfer back to the oven for 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and let them rest for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing & serving.
