This meal is a great display of delicious summer produce



  • 150g potatoes
  • 50g snow peas, stringy part removed
  • ½ head broccoli
  • ½ punnet cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon chopped mint leaves
  • ½ shallot, finely diced
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar (e.g. white wine, red wine, cider)


  • 150g lamb rump steak (at room temperature)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped rosemary leaves
  • 1 tablespoon chopped mint leaves
  • 2 tablespoons panko breadcrumbs
  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard


  1. oven to 220oC. Line an oven tray with baking paper.
  2. Cut potatoes into quarters and toss with a drizzle of olive oil on prepared tray. Season with salt and pepper and cook for 17–20 minutes, until crispy. Turn once during cooking.
  3. While potatoes are cooking, prepare the rest of the meal. Finely slice snow peas and chop broccoli into small florets. Pat lamb dry with paper towels, season with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil.
  4. Heat a small fry-pan on high heat and cook lamb for about 1 minute each side, until just browned (it does not need to be cooked through yet). Remove from pan and allow to cool slightly. In a small bowl mix rosemary, mint, breadcrumbs and a drizzle of olive oil together.
  5. Pat lamb dry with paper towels and spread top of lamb with mustard. Pack herb crumb mix on top of mustard, pressing down firmly to coat. When potatoes have 6 minutes cook time remaining, add broccoli, tomatoes and lamb to same tray.
  6. Cook lamb for about 4 minutes for medium-rare (depending on thickness), or until cooked to your liking. Set aside, covered with foil, to rest for 2–3 minutes. Toss mint, shallot, snow peas and vinegar through roasted vegetables. Drizzle with olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  7. place roast potato salad onto a plate and top with herb crusted lamb.
