Tip

Try a quick stir-fry
Lamb & ginger stir-fry: Rub lamb steaks with Chinese five spice powder, grill as before. Finely slice courgettes, halve tomatoes & finely shred a small knob of ginger. Heat oil in a wok, add courgettes, tomatoes & ginger and stir-fry for about 3 mins until the courgette starts to soften. Add the garlic, fry for 1 min, then splash in 2 tbsp soy sauce. Slice the lamb steaks and add to the pan just before serving, along with their juices. Scatter with coriander & serve with rice or noodles.

Method

  1. Chop the courgettes into large chunks, then boil or steam until tender, about 5 mins. Tip into a colander and lightly press out as much liquid as possible using a potato masher or fork, then chop the courgettes into smaller pieces.

  2. Heat the oil in a pan, add the garlic and tomatoes, then fry briefly until the tomatoes are just softening. Stir in the courgettes and heat through, then add the chopped parsley or coriander and stir through. Keep warm.

  3. Season the lamb steaks and grill for 3-4 mins each side. Serve with the tomato & courgette crush on the side.
