Lamb Cutlets with Pea and Lettuce RagoutMike Reid
- 3 bone lamb cutlets (French trimmed)
- 2 carrots, peeled and diced
- 35ml Early harvest olive oil
- 70g smoked lardons (sliced bacon)
- 100g frozen peas
- 1 iceberg lettuce, chopped
- 150ml lamb stock, reduced by half in a saucepan for 10 minutes on a low heat (75ml to be used)
- Score the fat of your lamb rack and coat your lamb with salt and cook fat side down on your hot hibachi or BBQ. Cook your lamb for about 12 minutes for medium. Set aside to rest for half the cooking time.
- Slice your iceberg lettuce into wedges and season with olive oil and salt. Grill and caramelize on the hibachi or grill for 8-10 minutes.
- 10 minutes before serving, heat the oil in a sauté or frying pan. Add the lardons and gently fry until they render their fat and are coloured all over. Set the pan aside.
- To finish the ragoût, add the peas, blanched carrots and 75ml of the reduced cooking juices to the pan with the lardons. Leave to simmer for 2 minutes, or until the peas are tender. Stir in the lettuce and continue simmering until it wilts. Season with salt and pepper, if necessary.
- To plate, slice your lamb cutlets, and place on top of the charred lettuce. Cover in your ragoût and enjoy!
