Salt and pepper the boned loins of lamb on both sides and put them to brown in a pan with extra virgin olive oil, butter and rosemary.
Sear them for 3 minutes on each side. When they look enough browned add the brandy and leave it flaming.
Add the demi-glace sauce and cook it 4 minutes more, mixing now and again and check the sauce doesn’t become too dense. In this case adjust it with hot water or vegetable broth.
Dish it and add truffle flakes. We suggest you to complete it with some seasonable side dishes.
