Ingredients

SERVES 4

  • 4 lean lamb leg steaks
  • 2 tbsp rapeseed or olive oil 
  • 8 shallots (approx. 250g), finely chopped
  • 1-2 tsp demerara sugar
  • 1 level tbsp flour
  • 150ml hot lamb stock
  • 30g butter
  • 300ml red wine
  • Few sprigs fresh thyme leaves, roughly chopped
  • Salt and pepper

Method

STEP 1

Heat half the oil in a heavy casserole dish. Soften the shallots for 5 mins over a low heat.



STEP 2

Sprinkle with the sugar and flour. Stir for 30 seconds, then pour over the wine, stock and herbs. Bring to the boil and reduce by half over a low heat (approx. 20 mins).



STEP 3

Remove from the heat and add the butter in small pieces, stir and adjust the seasoning.



STEP 4

Heat a non-stick pan without oil on a high heat. Brush the steaks with the remaining oil and season. Fry for 6-8 mins on each side.



STEP 5

Serve piping hot, with the sauce, seasonal vegetables and new potatoes tossed in oil with rosemary and sea salt.




CHEF'S TIP

Remember to take the steaks out of the fridge 20 mins before cooking, to bring up to room temperature.
