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.
