Cooking Instructions

Cut the rim of fat off each steak. Oil the steaks and slide under a very hot grill. Brown for 1 minute a side to ensure the lamb is still moist and pink inside.
Smear with the parsley topping and slide under the grill for barely a minute.
To prepare the vegetables: In a saucepan over a medium heat, heat the oil with the garlic. Once fragrant, add the vegetables and mix.
Add the stock and a little seasoning. Simmer, tightly covered, for 15 minutes, or until tender. Check seasoning.
Leftovers? Thinly slice any leftover lamb, mix with vegetables and pasta and loosen with olive oil or pasta water. Sprinkle with Parmesan.
