Ingredients
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 (3.0-pound) piece boneless leg of lamb trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt plus more to taste
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper plus more to taste
  • 3 onions thinly sliced
  • 1 1/4 cup red wine
  • 1 1/2 cup low-sodium beef broth
  • 1/3 cup sliced dried apricots
Method

Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Sprinkle lamb with salt and pepper, add to the pot and cook until browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Transfer lamb to a plate and add onions to the pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are golden brown, about 10 minutes. Add wine and simmer until reduced by about half. Add broth, return lamb to the pot, cover, and simmer 2 hours. Add apricots, turn lamb, and continue to simmer until lamb is very tender, about 1 hour more.

Transfer lamb to a platter, cover and keep warm. Simmer sauce until reduced to about 2 1/2 cups; taste and adjust seasoning with salt or pepper if desired. Slice lamb, pour sauce over lamb and serve.
