Basil-Infused Extra-Virgin Olive Oil:

  • 3 cups tightly packed basil leaves, washed and stemmed
  • 2 cups extra-virgin olive oil
Medallion of Lamb with Green and Black Olives:
  • Heat oil in a large saute pan until hot.
  • Season lamb medallions and add to pan. Cook over high flame until meat has caramelized.
  • Turn over and continue to cook until other side has caramelized.
  • Reduce heat. Add butter and cook for 2 minutes. (Total cooking time for medium-rare is 6 minutes.)
  • Remove meat from pan and keep warm.
  • Drain off excess fat, and deglaze pan with sauce.
  • Add olives, and adjust seasoning.
Quick Sauce for Lamb:
  • Within 30 to 45 minutes, this procedure can yield a sauce with the same intense flavor, same viscosity and same rich color as restaurants produce.
  • Heat an Oster® Electric Skillet to medium heat with enough canola oil to coat the bottom.

  • Once second reduction is complete and bones begin to roast, add other flavoring components desired, such as mirepoix, tomatoes, or herbs (chop fine for maximum flavor extraction).
  • Continue to roast until vegetables are caramelized.
  • At this point, add three times as much liquid as the volume of bones. The liquid is cook's choice: water, stock and half water, or perhaps a small amount of sauce left from previous recipe.
  • Reduce volume by half.
  • Strain twice, once through a coarse strainer and then through a fine-mesh strainer (chinois).

  • Add basil and blanch for 45 seconds.
  • Drain in a basket strainer and cool under running water.
  • Squeeze excess water from basil leaves and place them in an Oster® blender container with olive oil.
  • Begin blending at low speed to break up leaves.
  • Once basil begins to blend freely, turn to high speed and continue blending for 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Place in a glass storage container and refrigerate overnight in order to create an intensely flavored and richly colored oil.
  • Secure cheesecloth around the rim of a shallow wide-mouthed container.
  • Pour in oil and allow to strain. This will take up to an hour, depending on temperature of oil.
  • After oil has strained, gently wring cheesecloth for maximum extraction. The remaining basil pulp can be used for pesto, as a marinade for chicken, in sauces, or on pasta.
  • Basil-infused extra-virgin olive oil has a refrigerated shelf life of 3 to 4 weeks.
To Serve:
