Lamb and Broccoli Stew

1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup kosher salt plus more
2 pounds bone-in lamb shoulder
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 medium onions, coarsely chopped
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 sprig each rosemary & thyme
1 bay leaf
1 cup dry white wine
8 cups chicken broth

Other ingredients:
2 large eggs
2 garlic cloves
3 tablespoons (or more) fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup olive oil
2 bunches broccoli, cut into long florets
Flat-leaf parsley and fresh tarragon leaves (for garnish)

Lamb: Whisk sugar, 3/4 cup salt, and 10 cups water in a large bowl until salt and sugar dissolve. Add lamb, cover, and chill for at least 12 hours and up to 2 days. Heat oil in a large heavy pot over medium-high heat. Add onions, garlic, rosemary sprig, thyme sprig, and bay leaf. Cook, stirring often, until onions are golden brown and soft, 10-15 minutes. Remove pot from heat and add wine, stirring and scraping up any browned bits from bottom of pan. Return pot to heat and simmer until wine is reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Remove lamb shoulder from brine; add to pot, along with chicken broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer gently, partially covered and skimming fat occasionally, until lamb is fork-tender, 5-6 hours. Transfer lamb to a platter and remove bones. Cut or shred meat into bite-size pieces. If needed, boil cooking liquid in pot until reduced to 6 cups, 15-30 minutes. Season sauce with salt, if needed. Return lamb to pot. Lamb can merry for up to 3 days. Just let it cool slightly, then chill until cold. Cover and keep chilled. Discard fat and reheat before serving.

Other Ingredients: When ready to serve stew place eggs in a small saucepan and add water to cover by 1-inch. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Cover and let sit for 3 minutes. Transfer eggs to a bowl of ice water and let cool completely. Peel. Combine eggs, garlic, 3 tablespoons lemon juice, and 1/2 teaspoons salt in a blender. With the motor running, gradually add oil, blending until a creamy sauce. Season garlic sauce with salt and more lemon juice, if desired. Cook broccoli in a large pot of boiling salted water until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Drain; rinse under cold water to slow cooking. Lay 5 broccoli florets in 4 bowls, divide stew among bowls and garnish with parsley, tarragon, and garlic sauce.
