Juicy, tender lamb tournedos, wrapped in bacon and filled with a goat cheese, chive and thyme mixture.
Recipe from Chef Serge Bottelli – Lido Complex
8 – 3oz lamb tournedos, cut 1-inch thick
4 oz goat cheese
2 oz cream cheese
1 teaspoon chives, chopped
1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme
1 tsp olive oil
1 egg yolk
8 slices bacon, optional
In a bowl, mix cheese, egg yolk, chives and thyme. Season with salt and pepper to taste. From the top of each tournedos, make a cross with a paring knife to produce a cavity. Fill the cavity with the goat cheese mixture, wrap the tournedos with a slice of bacon, using a toothpick at the end to keep it together. In a non-stick pan add oil and pan sear the lamb on the goat cheese side first for 90 seconds. Turn the lamb over and cook for 1 minute. Place in a moderately hot oven for 4 minutes. Serve with a red wine sauce.
