Karen Barnes’ lamb chop recipe, served with roasted potato wedges, makes for an easy midweek meal.
- 25g (8.1g saturated)
- 41.7g (8.2g sugars)
- 4 potatoes
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 25g dried porcini mushrooms
- 1 onion
- 250g chestnut mushrooms
- 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
- 100ml madeira or port (or anything you have open – sherry or white wine will also work)
- 4 large lamb chops, trimmed
- 2 fresh thyme sprigs
- 4 tbsp half-fat crème fraîche
- Steamed savoy cabbage, to serve, optional
- Heat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. Slice the potatoes into wedges, put in a large roasting tin, then toss with 1 tbsp oil and season. Roast for 25 minutes.
- Meanwhile, soak the porcini in 125ml boiling water.
- Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan. Chop the onion, then fry gently for 10 minutes until soft. Slice and add the fresh mushrooms. Fry for 5 minutes.
- Drain the porcini (reserve the liquid), then chop finely and add to the pan with their liquid, the mustard and madeira/port.
- Heat the remaining oil over a high heat. Season the chops. Fry for 3 minutes on each side.
- Add the lamb and thyme to the potatoes. Cook in the oven for 8-10 minutes for medium.
- Stir the crème fraîche into the mushrooms, taste and season. Serve the lamb and potatoes with the sauce and steamed cabbage, if you like.
