Lamb Shoulder with Garlic Sauce

I found a great pair for Jess's Roasted Tomatoes and home fries! A slice of lamb shoulder with garlic sauce! Delicious.. Eric and I were licking our plates after eating this...
slices of lamb shoulder or leg (1 slice per person)
3-4 garlic cloves, peeled
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp flour
fresh ground pepper
some chopped parsley
few shakes of thyme
some EVOO
1. Take the lamb out of the fridge at least 30 minutes before cooking it. Brush them with EVOO and sprinkle salt, pepper, and thyme.
2. In a small sauce pot, cover the whole garlic cloves with cold water and bring to a boil around 5-10 minutes or until cloves are tender.
3. Drain the cloves and keep the water. In a blender, mix the cloves with the heavy cream and flour, and add a drizzle of the water. Put back into the sauce pot.
4. Heat on low and whisk until it thickens a bit or to your liking. Add the parsley and pepper and keep warm until your lamb is done.
5. To nicely cook the lamb, heat a skillet with around 2 tbsp EVOO and cook about 4 minutes on each side. I like mine medium.. cook longer or shorter depending on how you like it.

Serve with the sauce on the side, some Roasted Tomatoes and home fries... mouthwateringly delicious!
You can sub the fries for anything.. pasta, rice, mashed potatoes.. oh yea this sauce would be great on mashed potatoes!
