Method

  1. Put the butter beans, 4 tbsp of the oil, the garlic and 3 tbsp of water into a pan and heat through. Smash the beans with a potato masher until you have a rough mash, stir in the lemon juice and mint, season to taste and keep warm.
  2. Season each lamb steak with the black pepper and a sprinkling of salt. Heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan until really hot. Add the lamb steaks and cook for 3 minutes on each side for pink meat or until cooked to your liking. Spoon the mash onto four warm serving plates and top each with a lamb steak. Quickly stir half a cup of water into the lamb pan, boil to make a sauce and spoon over the lamb. Add a handful of watercress to each plate and serve.

I didn't follow the recipe for the lamb, but the butterbean mash was amazing! Really tasty and something I will make over and over again.

This was lovely. The flavours really complimented each other. The butter bean mash was a little bit dry, next time i would add more water maybe, and I decided to serve it with some mixed veg as had no watercress to hand.

Overall a lovely mid week dinner.

The lamb is nice in itself, but I make the butterbean mash again and again to go with a steak or mutton chops too. It's surprisingly filling whilst being not as heavy as a potato mash, and a great storecupboard standby - an absolute winner.
