Ingredients

  • 1 pack of Silver Fern Farms Lamb Steaks
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh oregano
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper

Salad

  • 1 eggplant, cut into finger-sized pieces
  • Olive oil
  • 1 punnet cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 4-5 spring onions, trimmed and chopped
  • 10 sundried tomatoes, halved
  • ½ cup finely chopped fresh basil leaves
  • ½ cup good vinaigrette
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method

Place the lamb, garlic, oregano, olive oil and black pepper in a snap-lock plastic bag or lidded container. Seal and toss well to ensure the lamb is well coated. Leave to marinate for 15 minutes.

Toss the eggplant pieces in olive oil and fry in a hot pan until well browned and softened. Place in a bowl with the cherry tomatoes, spring onions, sundried tomatoes, basil, and vinaigrette. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

Heat a frying pan or grill pan and, when hot, add the lamb and cook for 2-3 minutes each side until medium-rare. Remove from the pan, cover and rest for 5 minutes before slicing diagonally across the grain.

Toss the lamb and any juices that have collected through the salad. Serve on toasted focaccia bread with baby salad leaves.
