Step 1

Mix together the lemon zest, garlic, Herbes de Provence, salt, black pepper, Dijon mustard, and two tablespoons olive oil.

Quarter the shallot and toss in a bit of the mustard sauce and some extra olive oil.

Cut the meat into portion sizes. You will need to cut between the rib bones.
Place the meat on a rack in a baking dish order to keep the meat up off the bottom of the pan. Add the quartered shallot to the pan.

Bake in a 325 degree oven for 2 -1/2 to 3 hours, or until fork-tender. Place the meat on a platter, covered with foil and a towel and let it rest for 20 minutes while working on the sauce.

Heat the turkey stock, white wine and the drippings (not fat) from the lamb over medium-high heat for a few minutes before adding 2 tablespoons butter.

Pour over the meat and serve.
