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, discard the stalks

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

Season with salt and pepper and half the chopped rosemary and give everything a good mix up

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

3 Rosemary Lamb Meatballs & Mint Sauce

While the potatoes are cooking, combine the lamb mince, chopped garlic, panko breadcrumbs, remaining chopped rosemary in a bowl

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

4 Rosemary Lamb Meatballs & Mint Sauce

Mix the lamb mixture thoroughly until fully combined, then shape into 6 [12] meatballs (they don’t have to look perfect) – these are your rosemary lamb meatballs

Refrigerate the meatballs until later

Tip: Chilling the meatballs helps them keep their shape when cooking

5 Rosemary Lamb Meatballs & Mint Sauce

Top, tail, peel and chop 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 and cook, covered 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 lamb meatballs and cook for 4 min, moving them about in the pan so they brown evenly

Lower the heat to medium-low and cook, covered for 5-8 min until cooked through

7 Rosemary Lamb Meatballs & Mint Sauce

Whilst the meatballs are cooking, strip the mint leaves from the stalks and chop them finely, discard the stalks

Add them to a pestle & 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
