Lamb cutlets with anchovy & sun-dried tomato butter

Lamb cutlets with anchovy & sun-dried tomato butter

A great way to use up some of those ingredients left in the cupboard

  • Preparation: 5 mins
  • Cooking: 16 mins
  • Serves: 4

What you need:

  • 8 lean lamb cutlets or 4 loin chops
  • Salt and freshly milled black pepper
  • For the Sun-Dried Tomato Butter:
  • 100g/4oz unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 x 50g can anchovies, drained and roughly chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped or crushed
  • 25g/1oz sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained
  • 25g/1oz pine nuts, toasted
  • 1.25ml/1/2tsp mild chilli powder

What you do:

  1. To prepare the butter; place all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until blended. Put the mixture on a large piece of cling film or foil and mould into a sausage shape. Chill until required.
  2. Season the cutlets or chops and cook under a preheated moderate grill for 6-8 minutes. Turn over and cook for a further 3-4 minutes.
  3. Top each of the cutlets or chops with a disc of the butter. Return to the grill and cook for another 3-4 minutes.
  4. Serve with crusty bread, any meat juices from the pan and the griddled asparagus with shaved Parmesan.

Cook's tip:

If preferred use sun-dried tomato paste instead of sun-dried tomatoes. This butter works well on beef steaks too.
