Lamb Steaks with Purple Sprouting Brocolli and Potato

These lovely Lamb steaks were suppose to be cooked in the camping stove in lovely rural Derbyshire , but it was insanely cold and  with a predicted frost and rain we had to give up and  dig the car out of the swampy campsite.

Lambs

All this meant these  lamb steaks  marinated for 48hours which meant they were deliciously tender

Lamb , rosemary and anchovies just get on so well  I often rub  anchovies over a leg of lamb before roasting but here I kept them separate in a delicious warm salad of seasonal vegetables with new potatoes and purple sprouting broccoli

I could eat this as a simple salad perhaps with the addition of a little feta cheese or a poached egg.

    Lovely! We’ve been playing around with marinades lately and I’m really enjoying the results. I used to think that good meat should be allowed to shine without and additional flavours but am learning that subtle flavouring can really enhance the meat.
