  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the sugar and vinegar.​
  3. Step 3

    Bring to a boil over medium heat, then lower to a simmer and cook until the liquid has reduced by half, around 10 to 12 minutes. It should have a thick, syrupy consistency.​
  4. Step 4

    Turn off the heat and let the sauce cool for 5 minutes before adding the mint leaves. Give it a stir.
  5. Step 5

    Pour it into a bowl and cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Let it steep for about 1 hour so the flavor of the mint can infuse the sauce, much like what happens when you're steeping a cup of tea.​
  6. Step 6

    Serve at room temperature with lamb.
