Servings: 4 to 6
Prep Time: 33 min
Cook Time: 30 min
2 pounds boneless leg of lamb (or shoulder), trimmed of excess fat
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 whole egg, plus more if needed, for dredging
1/4 cup vegetable oil, for cooking
White Wine Pan Gravy:
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup dry white wine
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 cups vegetable stock
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves (3 to 4 sprigs)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F.
For the lamb: Cut the meat with the grain into 1/2-thick slices. Season each piece on both sides with the salt and pepper. Place the flour in a pie pan and mix in the garlic powder and cayenne pepper. Place the eggs in a separate pie pan and beat. Dredge the meat on both sides in the egg, and then the flour. Repeat with all the meat pieces. (Reserve the remaining flour for the pan gravy.) Place the meat on a plate and allow it to sit for 10 to 15 minutes before cooking.
Place enough of the vegetable oil to cover the bottom of a 12-inch skillet and set over medium-high heat. Once the oil begins to shimmer, add the meat in batches, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Cook each piece on both sides until golden brown, approximately 4 minutes on each side. Remove the lamb to a wire rack set in a half sheet pan and place in the oven to stay warm while the other pieces are being prepared. Repeat until all the meat is browned.
For the gravy: Add the vegetable oil to the pan. Add the white wine to deglaze the pan and reduce by half. Whisk in 2 tablespoons of the reserved flour. Then whisk in the Dijon mustard and the vegetable stock. Continue to whisk until the gravy comes to a boil and begins to thicken. Add the milk and thyme and whisk until the gravy coats the back of a wooden spoon, 5 to 10 minutes. Season to taste with more salt and pepper, if needed. Serve over the lamb steaks.
