Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Heat a heavy ovenproof skillet over high heat. Brush the lamb loins with 1 teaspoon of the oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Sear the lamb on all sides, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer the pan to the oven and roast until the lamb is medium-rare (120 to 130°F on an instant-read thermometer), about 8 minutes. Remove the lamb from the pan and set it aside on a carving board tented with foil to keep warm.
  2. Without washing the pan, place it over medium heat. Add shallots and the remaining 2 teaspoons oil. Cook the shallots, stirring, until softened, about 1 minute. Add stock or broth, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce; stir, scraping up any browned bits. Increase the heat to high and boil the sauce until it has reduced to 1/2 cup, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Thinly slice the lamb. Toss watercress in 2 tablespoons of the warm sauce until slightly wilted and arrange on 6 warmed dinner plates. Fan the lamb slices alongside. Drizzle the remaining sauce over the lamb and serve.
