1 1/3 cup cabernet wine
1/4 cup butter
2 1/2 tablespoons flour
1/4 cup fresh parsley
6 cups au jus (The drippings from roasting beef or lamb)
2 tablespoons lamb seasoning
1 tablespoon garlic powder


In a bowl mix 1/3 cup of wine with flour, set aside.

Put remaining wine, broth, parsley, lamb seasoning and garlic powder in saucepan . Bring to a GENTLE boil, then turn heat down and reduce about 4-5 minutes. Stir in flour mixture.

While you are reducing liquid, brown butter in another pan (DON'T JUST MELT BUTTER BROWN IT, DO NOT BURN ). WHEN YOU HAVE FINISHED REDUCING, ADD BUTTER AND MIX WELL. By this time your sauce should have a semi-thick look to it.

Where do you get 6 cups of lamb drippings?!?!?!?!

CDKitchen Staff Reply:
This sauce is meant to go with rack of lamb so it is assumed that you are also cooking the lamb at the same time. You could substitute beef stock.

Excellent Basis for a Cab Sauce. For Lamb seasoning (and garlic) I use a 1-2 sprigs of rosemary, a bit of dried thyme and a pressed toe of garlic - because that is what I like to season my lamb with!

I prepared this with a boneless lamb roast, I only had 2 cups of drippings so I had to downsize the recipe a little bit. I used burgandy cooking wine and added a teaspoon of cilantro paste and two teaspoons of dijon mustard to the recipe and it was absolutly excellent!!
