  1. In a medium bowl, stir together 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, mustard, garlic, lemongrass, ginger, lemon juice, rosemary and pepper. Rub half of the marinade onto the lamb chops and set the other half aside. Cover the lamb chops and marinate them in the refrigerator for 1-3 hours.
  2. In a wok or a large frying pan, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Stand the lamb chops on end to brown the edges - repeat for each edge for about 30 seconds. Then sear the chops 5 minutes on each side or until medium-rare (thickest part of chops should be 145 degrees on a meat thermometer). Remove the lamb chops and pour off all but about 1 teaspoon of the fat.
  3. Reduce heat to medium. Add the sliced leeks and cook for 3 minutes or until soft. Add the white wine and scrape the brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Add the reserved marinate and chicken stock, increase the heat to medium high, and bring to a boil. When liquid is reduced the liquid by half, stir in the bok choy leaves.
  4. Serve the chops with the leeks, bok choy and sauce spooned on top.
