Ingredients

  • 4 lamb leg steaks
  • 100g Greek yogurt
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 200g couscous
  • 300ml chicken stock, hot
  • Seeds of 1 pomegranate
  • Handful of fresh parsley, chopped
  • Handful of fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • Juice of 1 small lemon, plus wedges

Method

  1. Put the lamb in a bowl with the yogurt, garlic, cumin, cayenne and half the oil. Season, mix and set aside.
  2. Put a griddle (or frying) pan over a high heat until smoking hot. Griddle the lamb for 4-5 minutes on each side until cooked but still slightly pink in the centre. Set aside to rest for a minute.
  3. Put the couscous in a bowl, pour over the hot stock and remaining oil, then stir. Cover with cling film, then stand for 5 minutes. Fluff up with a fork, then stir in the remaining ingredients. Season and serve topped with lamb slices and lemon wedges.
