Lamb steaks with mint and lemon

Found a great lamb recipe by Nigel Slater some time ago that I keep meaning to post. It’s amazingly easy and results in a delicious sauce with flavours that let you imagine your eating al fresco in a vineyard in Greece or something. I got this from the BBC Food website and it takes about 30 mins from start to finish.

The lamb comes out tasting absolutely delicious if you get the heat right. You get a nice brown glazing and tasty rosy meat inside. To get this effect you have to make sure the heat is hot enough to brown the meat but not so hot it’ll singe the mint. The mint and lemon makes a really nice flavouring and once you deglaze the pan with the lemon juice, its nice if you spoon the sauce over the potatoes and meat it brings the dish together perfectly.
