Lamb with a soya sauce kick

Our whole family love lamb, so I decided to perk it up a little with a rich and sticky sauce.  A change from roasting it or making a curry!

Serves 4 to 6

8 pieces of fillet neck lamb

Bunch of spring onions, washed and finely chopped

Half a cucumber, washed and cut into large chunks

Olive oil

Baby tomatoes

Oregano….1 tablespoon

Kikkoman soy sauce……2 tablespoons  ( http://www.kikkoman.co.uk )

A splash of  good quality balsamic vinegar

A dessert spoon of  good quality honey

Salt and pepper to taste

Lamb in soy sauce

To serve:  mashed potato with half of the spring onions, German mustard, cream and butter…….any dark green vegetable such as purple sprouting broccoli, asparagus, green beans.

In a large frying pan, heat some olive oil, just enough to seal the lamb.  Add the lamb and cook for about 2 minutes until the meat is sealed.  Remove with a slotted spoon on to a plate and set aside.

4 lamb in soy

Put half the spring onions in the oil and cook until translucent.  Add the cucumber, baby tomatoes, oregano, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, honey, salt and pepper to taste.  Continue to cook for about 2 minutes to amalgamate the ingredients.

Transfer the meat to an oven proof dish with lid and pour over the ingredients from the frying pan.  Lay half the green vegetables in the tray.  Cook in an oven preheated to 180C for 20 minutes (rare) or 25 minutes (medium).
