  • 1 pint dry white wine
  • 2 heads garlic, not peeled or separated, cut in 1/2 through the cloves
  • 1 large bunch mint (reserve enough leaves for 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped) Use the rest for broth
  • 2 quarts veal stock, or canned chicken broth
  • Oil, for sauteing
  • 4 double rib lamb chops
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons cold butter, cut into cubes
  • Salt and pepper
  • Sugar


Step 1

Make broth by combining the lamb trimmings (or use lamb shank cut up), wine, garlic, mint and stock. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer for 1 hour. Skim occasionally.

Step 2

Strain broth through a fine chinoise and set aside, remove fat from top as it cools and comes to the surface. (This will be more broth than you need for 4 chops)

Step 3

In a hot saute pan with a little oil, saute lamb chops on all sides until medium-rare. Finish in the oven, if necessary. Set chops aside to rest for a few minutes while you make the sauce.

Step 4

Wipe out the saute pan and pour in the red wine vinegar, reduce over high heat until almost dry. Add 1 cup of the lamb broth and continue to reduce by about 1/2. Reduce heat to low and swirl in the butter to lightly thicken the sauce.

Step 5

Season with salt and pepper and a tiny pinch of sugar. If desired add more vinegar.

Step 6

Stir in the chopped mint and any juices from the lamb chops.
