Ingredients
  

Sauce:

  • ½ cup red wine
  • ½ cup beef broth
  • 3 cloves garlic (diced)
  • 2 tbsp butter

  • ½ cup parsley
  • 2 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
  • Salt & pepper (to taste)

Instructions
 

  • Trim off most of the fat and clean the bones.
  • Season with salt then sear on a hot pan and baste with butter until meat is thoroughly browned. (About 5-10 minutes).
  • Bake in the oven at 300°F for 30-40 minutes or until the internal temperature hits 135°F (carryover cooking makes it a perfect medium).
  • While you let the lamb rest, (very important) make the sauce in the same pan by first browning the garlic.
  • Pour in red wine and let it reduce by 75%.
  • Mix in the rest of ingredients over medium-high heat and let it reduce to your desired consistency.
  • To make the chimichurri, finely chop garlic and parsley then mix with remaining ingredients.
