Into a large pan 3 bayleaves
2 sprigs of rosemary
8! cloves of crushed garlic – I think 4-5
6 anchovies for deep flavour
600ml milk
400 ml cream – Season

bring to boil just to infuse –
fish out bay leaves and rosemary – add 50g grated parmesan

Then Add add to infusion

1kilo potatoes finely slicked –
2 bulbs of fennel -same
2 onion thinly sliced – mix, then pack down…
Layer last row of potatoes on top… (wet)
Cover with foil 180C/350F for half hour..

Then prepare lamb. Remove trim all fat…. 2 rack of lamb for four

Olive oil and butter in pan and season
Just sear until golden but still raw inside – set aside.

Blend for crumb mixture :
100g pistachios
1 bunch flat leaf parsley
75g bread chunks
2 cloves garlic
Grate in ½ nutmeg (or a little less perhaps).
Whiz in food processor

Coat lamb very generously with Dijon mustard
Heap on crumb mix and pat/ press down hard to form a crust

After 30 mins remove potatoes from oven
Top with more Grated parmesan if you want to.
Continue to bake for 45 minutes without foil

After 10 mins put lamb in oven for 25 mins and then remove after 25 minutes.. Rest lamb for 10 minutes then both ready at the same time

Serve one rack sliced and the other whole on a board.
Garnish potatoes with chopped fennel top

Side order of green beans perhaps…

Lamb Steaks in Onion and Mint Sauce

Cooked in the pressure cooker this meal took less than 30minutes from frozen to serving. The lamb was tender and very tasty. With the vegetables all cooked in the pressure cooker too, this dish is a complete meal, but can be served on Mashed Potatoes instead of adding potatoes into the pot.

  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 1/2 small suede, cubed
  • 1-2 tablespoons of mint sauce
  • 1/2 gravy or stock
  • chili if required
  • 1 sprig of fresh sage
  1. Make up the gravy or the stock, with the mint and sage and put into pressure cooker
  2. Place the frozen pieces of lamb into the gravy and cook on second ring for 10-15minutes
  3. Meanwhile, dice the onions, suede, potatoes and carrot
  4. Release pressure quickly when its time
  5. Add all the onions, and half of the remaining vegetables into the stock/gravy
  6. Insert the vegetable tray so that it sits above the lamb and add the remaining vegetables
  7. Bring pressure up to second ring again and cook for 10 further minutes.
