Lamb Cutlets with Mint Peas

2013-01-13

In this classically British recipe, deliciously succulent lamb cutlets are given extra flavour with a streaky bacon wrap and simple frozen peas are transformed into a gourmet side with the help of a little fresh mint. The best part? It takes just 30 minutes, making it an easy midweek meal.

Ingredients:

  • 8 lamb cutlets
  • 2tsp English mustard
  • 8 thin rashers streaky bacon
  • Vegetable oil
  • 300g (10oz)  frozen peas
  • Knob of butter
  • 2tsp chopped fresh mint leaves, to serve

Method:

  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Heat the oven to 200°C (gas mark 6). Spread a little mustard on the cutlets, then wrap each one in a rasher of bacon. Secure with a toothpick.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. When it’s hot, sear the cutlets for about 1 minute each side, or until coloured. You may need to do this in batches. Transfer then to a roasting tin, and roast in the oven for 7-10 minutes.
  3. While the cutlets are cooking, add the peas to the boiling water and cook for about 4 minutes. Drain well, return them to the saucepan and add a knob of butter. Lightly mash the peas with a potato masher, or whizz them quickly in a food processor. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, and sprinkle over the mint. Keep warm over a low heat until ready to serve with the lamb.

    I’m having a dinner party soon for approximately 15 people,
    I’m serving:
    Garlic fried prawns with a hoi-sin sauce,
    Roast Leg of Lamb with Rosemary & garlic, Roast Potatoes, Honey glazed carrots, Parmesan parsnips, Minted peas, Mint Sauce & gravey,
    & I have no idea how to finish it off.

    Just to complicate matters I have a vegan friend coming who’s having home-made tomato soup, cutlets, boiled potatoes, steamed carrots & parsnips, minted peas & mint sauce. but I’d REALLY like it if I can come up with a vegan friendly dessert.

    Please help!!
