Food Monday ~ Lamb Leg Steaks in Orange & Ginger

This recipe takes me back a year or three.  I had forgotten it was in my repertoire.  Lamb leg stakes are now on my shopping list.

Lamb Leg Steaks in Orange & Ginger
Preheat the oven to 120°C

4-6 Lamb leg steaks
350 mls orange juice
zest of 1 orange
6 pieces preserved ginger, finely chopped
Flour to coat the chops seasoned with salt & black pepper.
Olive oil for frying
2 oranges.

Wipe the chops with kitchen paper and coat with the seasoned flour.  Heat the olive oil in frying pan and seal chops on both sides but do not overcook.  Remove from pan and put into casserole.  Pour the orange juice into the casserole around the chops and sprinkle on the finely diced preserved ginger.  Put the lid on the casserole and place in the pre-heated oven & cook for 2 hours.  Remove the lid, turn up the oven to 200°C and cook for a further 20 minutes.  Serve garnished with orange circles.
