Lamb Steak

by Jo Kenny

So I had this for dinner the other night, it was nothing ground breaking or complicated, but it was bloody delicious. Lamb steak doesn’t tend to get much lime light either, so this is my little homage to Mr. Lamb, accompanied by some of the best damn potatoes you can make in your kitchen!

Lamb Steak Dinner

  • 2-4 lamb steaks (depending how hungry you are!)
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • A few sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 1 pack of vine tomatoes
  • Rocket
  • Jersey Royal potatoes
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • Seasoning
  • Olive oil

First up, the best damn potatoes you can make in your kitchen! These cook quickly, get a little crispy and soak up all the flavour. Slice your potatoes thinly and leave to soak in water for 5 minutes to soften a little.

Drain and pat dry with kitchen towel. Add to a roasting tray with a good drizzle of olive oil, generous salt & pepper, a sprig of coarsely chopped rosemary and 4 crushed garlic cloves. Roast at 200c for 30 minutes, with a stir of the potatoes halfway.

Whilst the potatoes are cooking, very finely chop another rosemary sprig and in a dish mix with the dijon mustard, seasoning and a tiny drizzle of oil. Dip the edges of your lamb steak into this to create a mustard herb crust. The steaks will take about 4 minutes to griddle or fry so don’t cook them when the potatoes still have a way to go! Do leave them to rest for a few minutes under some foil. Whilst that’s happening griddle the tomatoes in the lamb juices.

Okay, the potatoes are ready…
