Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Rosemary Lamb Meatballs & Mint Sauce

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Strip the rosemary leaves from the stalks and chop them finely

2 Rosemary Lamb Meatballs & Mint Sauce

Slice the potatoes (skins on) into discs (approx. 1cm thick), and add them to a baking tray with a drizzle of olive oil (use tin foil to avoid mess!)

Season with salt, pepper and half the chopped rosemary

Put the tray in the oven for 20-25 min or until the potatoes are starting to brown

3 Rosemary Lamb Meatballs & Mint Sauce

Meanwhile add the chopped garlic, panko breadcrumbs and remaining chopped rosemary to the lamb mince

Crumble in the beef stock cube[s] and season with plenty of pepper

Mix thoroughly (use clean hands) so that the stock cube[s] are fully combined

4 Rosemary Lamb Meatballs & Mint Sauce

Divide the mixture into 6 [12] pieces

Shape the mixture into meatballs (use wet hands for easy shaping)

Refrigerate until step 6

Tip: chilling the mince helps the meatballs keep their shape when cooking

5 Rosemary Lamb Meatballs & Mint Sauce

Top, tail, peel and cut the carrots into batons 

Add the carrots to a small pot with 50ml [100ml] cold water, half of the honey, a pinch of salt and a large knob of butter

Bring to the boil over a high heat, then reduce the heat to low, cover and cook for 10 min or until the carrots are tender

6 Rosemary Lamb Meatballs & Mint Sauce

Meanwhile, heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a matching lid, with 1 tsp [2 tsp] vegetable oil over a high heat

Once hot, add the meatballs and cook for 4 min, moving them about in the pan so they brown evenly

Lower the heat to medium-low, cover with a lid and cook for 5-8 min until cooked through

7 Rosemary Lamb Meatballs & Mint Sauce

Meanwhile, strip the mint leaves from the stalks and chop them finely

Add them to a pestle and mortar with a pinch of salt and bash the leaves to a rough paste

Add 1/2 tsp [1 tsp] sugar, the remaining honey, white wine vinegar, 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] olive oil and mix to combine well - this is your mint sauce
