How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat the oven to 350°. Season the lamb with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add 2 lamb loins and brown on all sides over high heat. Remove the loins to a platter and repeat with the remaining lamb. Let cool.

Step 2    

Pour off the fat from the skillet. Add the wine and water and simmer over moderate heat for 5 minutes, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Strain this lamb jus into a small saucepan.

Step 3    

Brush the lamb loins with the mustard and arrange on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with the chopped thyme leaves and roast in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes for medium rare. Transfer the lamb to a cutting board.

Step 4    

Bring the reserved lamb jus to a simmer over moderate heat and cook until it has reduced by one-fourth, about 4 minutes. Whisk in the butter and season with salt and pepper.

Step 5    

Slice the lamb crosswise into 1/2-inch medallions. Drizzle with the jus, garnish with the thyme sprigs and serve.
