Food Monday ~ Lamb Steaks & Crunchy Rosti

Lamb Steaks & Crunchy Rosti

4 lamb steaks
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
Salt & ground black pepper
4 tablespoons oil
1 glass red wine
150ml lamb stock
Sprigs of flat leaf parsley for garnish

For the Rosti:

2 large waxy potatoes, peeled
½ onion, peeled and finely chopped
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley

Spread the steaks with mustard and garlic and season with black pepper.  Leave for 20 minutes.

Grate peeled potatoes and put into a bowl with the onion.  Add beaten egg, then chopped parsley and season.  Heat half the oil in a pan and fry dessert spoons of potato and onion mix until browned on both sides and cooked through.  Remove from pan and keep warm.

Heat the remaining oil in pan and cook lamb steaks to preference.  Remove from the pan and keep warm.  Add wine and stock to the pan.  Bring to the boil then simmer until reduced by half.  Season.  Arrange lamb steaks on rosti, pour over juice and garnish with sprigs of flat parsley.

    Sounds delish but seriously, for a country that supposedly ‘lives off the sheep’s back’ lamb here is awesomely expensive, up to $42 a kilo for those lovely little frenched cutlets. I don’t think I’ve had lamb for 10 years due to the price. Might have to make an exception next time I’m ‘dining alone’ that’s when I have my sneaky little gourmet tid bits. I wish you’d photograph the results?

    Baino – By the time I have the food ready, all I want to do is eat it without it going cold.

    Domestic Goddess Wannabe – We have to remember that the lambs are being reared for food.

    One of my favourite dins, GM, I love lamb preferably roasted with mint sauce (the real kind) and my recipe for rosti is very different, potatoes boiled and then shredded and then friend. I Yours would be more of a boxty?
