2 cloves Garlic
1 Shallot
1/4 cup Red Wine
1/4 cup Grain Mustard
1/2 cup Pecans
1/4 cup Vegetable Oil

Ingredients for BBQ Sauce

1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
6 oz Lamb Trimmings
1 Carrot, diced
1 Rib Celery, diced
1/2 Onion, diced
1/4 Chipotle Peppers Packed in Adobo
1/2 White Wine
1/4 cup Rice Wine Vinegar
1/4 Molasses
2 tbsp Sugar
1/2 Tomato Puree
1 cup Chicken Stock
1 cup Veal Stock
2 tbsp Butter

Method for Lamb Marinade

  • Trim lamb of all fat, reserving meat scraps for sauce.
  • Cut lamb into 6 to 8-oz pieces and set aside.
  • Place next 5 ingredients in food processor and pulse into paste.
  • With blade running slowly, add oil until mixture is emulsified.
  • Lightly coat meat with marinade.
  • Refrigerate overnight.

    Method for BBQ Sauce

    • Heat vegetable oil over high heat in large saucepan. Add lamb trimmings and brown. Add vegetables and cook until golden brown and lightly caramelized. Stir in chi-potle, wine, vinegar, molasses, sugar, and tomato paste. Reduce until mixture becomes a syrup consistency. Add chicken and veal stock. Reduce by 2/3, skimming frequently. Strain liquid through fine strainer.
    • Sauce can be made to this point 1 to 2 days in advance and refrigerated. This will allow any remaining fat to solidify so that it can be easily removed. Reheat sauce over low heat. Whisk in butter to enrich sauce. Reserve warm.
