How to make Honey-Mint Lamb & Potatoes

To make this recipe, lets start by marinating the lamb. In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, oil, garlic, mint, salt and pepper.

Place the lamb steaks into a baking dish, and pour the honey-mint mixture on top, spreading it evenly over both steaks.

Cover with clingfilm and refrigerate for 30 minutes, turning the lamb over halfway through, spreading the marinade over the tops once again.

Prep the new potatoes as instructed below.

Uncover the baking dish and bake for 30 minutes, or until the lamb is cooked through.

TIP: Just before the lamb is cooked, spread the marinade from the dish over the tops one last time, then finish cooking.

Add the potatoes to a large bowl. Add the oil, mint, salt and pepper, and toss until well coated.

Spread the potatoes out onto a roasting pan and bake for 30 minutes, or until cooked through, browned, and tender.

Serve immediately with the lamb, and drizzle extra honey-mint marinade on top.
