Method

  1. Make a dressing by mixing together the mustard, vinegar and honey. Spread ½ tsp over each steak and season well, reserving the remaining dressing. Tip the breadcrumbs out onto a plate and sprinkle over the lemon zest. Dip the steaks in this until coated. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and, when hot, cook the lamb until crisp and cooked through, about 7 mins on each side.
  2. Meanwhile, boil the potatoes in salted water for about 10 mins until soft, adding the broccoli for the final 5 mins of cooking. Drain and roughly mash together. Serve alongside the lamb with the leftover dressing drizzled over.

I struggled a bit with this, to be honest. I doubled it to serve 4, and the dressing looked far too much to use a 1/2 tsp on each steak, and use the rest for serving. In practice I ended up using a tbsp on each steak, and still had enough for serving, so wondered if it was a typo. Also, I had far too many breadcrumbs, which like others have said, didn't stick.

In the end, I spooned over the unstuck breadcrums with the rest of the dressing, and it turned out rather well. Everyone enjoyed it, but I'm not sure I want to try it again.

The lamb tasted great, but the crust didn't completely stick. My veg turned out mushy & sticky - easy on the green stuff!!

I don't know what I did wrong with this, but all the breadcrumb coating came off in the pan leaving ordinary lamb steaks - won't bother again.

Really nice dish, however not sure what size lamb steaks the recipe suggests as I felt that they were slightly overcooked so would cook them for a minute or two less each side. Mash was lovely as well as the sprouting brocc, I added a leek and a knob of butter, I also heated the remaining dressing before pouring over. Would definately make again

Nice crust to the lamb and really liked the sauce. Felt it needed a gravy so when I removed the lamb, added the left over dressing to the pan and flour to the pan and then some hot stock to make a gravy.

Very nice. I love the taste of honey on the meat. To improve this I would marinate them overnight.

Very easy and quick dish! We loved this! We used jersey potatoes and the heads of puple sprouting brocoli to make our mash which was delicious! The dressing left sprinkled round the plate looks great when served. The longer we left the meat in the dressing the better it tasted! Have now done several times and still love and not getting bored of!

The sauce and crusty lamb makes this a firm favourite with all my family. The crushed potatoes and tenderstem brocolli is perfect for lovers of bubble and squeak (I like to add a knob of butter to the mixture). The children are not big fans of lemon zest so I replace it with chopped basil which is equally delicious.
