Rosemary Sauce

2 tablespoon butter
1 large shallot, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup brown stock (see stocks)
1/2 cup heavy cream

Rosemary and lamb seem to go together, naturally, whether the herb is sprinkled on chops while grilling or incorporated in a savory sauce. This sauce is also delicious with cold roast lamb or any of that butterflied roast left over from the Sunday barbecue. Inspired by a sauce once served at New York City's American Harvest Restaurant, this makes a wonderful addition to a summer menu. Salt And Freshly Ground Black Pepper Heat the butter in a medium-size heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the shallot and saute until transparent, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the rosemaryand wine and cook over high heat until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the stock and continue to cook over high heat until the liquid is reduced by half. Add the heavy cream, and season, then boil over medium heat for 3 minutes. Strain through a sieve lined withcheesecloth if you prefer a smooth sauce; do not if a more textured sauce is appropriate. The sauce should be very hot. Serve immediately. Yield: About 1 cup of sauce.
