From CULINARIA SPAIN & recipe editor Ingeborg Pils, this special recipe is said to be native to the Balearic Islands off the coast of Spain where *fresh and simple* described the secret of the cuisine. They certainly succeed in this unbelievably simple to prepare, elegant to serve & flavored to perfection recipe using 2 of my favorite ingredients - lamb & garlic. *Enjoy*

Very simple and very yummy. I used about a head of garlic and doubled the wine so that there was lots of sauce. Delicious. Thanks twissis for another keeper.
