Made this as stated, used a mandolin to slice the sweet potatoes thinly and had no prob with the timings. My lamb steaks I took out the fridge in advance so they were not cold going into the pan and I let it rest a little before serving. Used fresh rosemary. Served with tender stem broccoli. It was very lovely--so nice to have a tasty, easy dish on the list with only a few ingredients and that is not loaded with garlic.

Doesn't work. Need to cook the potatoes first

Really enjoyed this. Agree need to cook vegetables longer before putting on the lamb. I made a jus ( posh gravy) red onions/ red wine /beef oxo/ and a bit of bisto. All went down very well !

I made this meal, but with a red wine/beef stock reduction. I feel it would have been very dry and quite boring without this sauce.

Use the pan the lamb steaks are fried in: Add finely chopped garlic, rosemary, thyme, 200ml red wine, 200ml beef stock. Turn the heat up high and reduce until it begins to thicken and add 25-50g butter to finish.

do you need to cover this (with foil) in the oven?

Ok this recipe was easy and sOOOOo tasty. My husband LOVED it and he's very picky. I cooked the veggies in the oven for 10-15 mins before adding the lamb and it came out perfect. I was worried the lamb would be dry but it was so juicy. The combination of the rosemary and the mustard seeds was just divine. I browned the lamb for 1-2 mins on each side and popped it on top the veggies for an additional10 mins in the oven. I did add carrots, 4 cloves of whole garlic and marinaded the lamb with only salt and pepper for about 20mins before I browned it. I made mint sauce to accompany the lamb, but it really wasn't necessary as the veggies and lamb was so flavourful.. I will definitely be making this again. Thank you :) :)

Quick, easy and really tasty. I added carrots for some extra vegetable vitamins. Unfortunately I didn't slice the potatoes or the carrots thinly enough so I needed extra cooking time. I'll know better for next time, or might put the veg ion for a bit before adding the meat!

Found the lamb to be a little on the dry side, so when I reheated the left-overs, I did it in a frying pan with some double cream - delicious!

Made this for tea after half marathon and it hit the spot. I added carrots to the roast and thinly cut sweet pots cooked in yhe 20 mins stated. Will definitely do again.

Great midweek tea although I prefer my Lamb a little pinker so I take it out after 15mins and cover with tinfoil to rest.

I would suggest adding a cup full of veg stock before roasting.. Bit dry otherwise

Really quick, nice and easy! If you're a beginner like me though, make sure you season the lamb correctly!

Great recipe. I used only one sweet potatoe and i added 2 small courgettes, 1 carrot and leak. I did put veggies mixed in oil and 1 tsp of dried rosemary for 20 min to oven before meat and only after I added meat with mustard, extra rosemary and 2 cloves of chopped garlic. Unfortunately Some leek burned, however the meat and rest of the veggies were perfect. Next time I will use just onion or I will add leek same time as the meat.

the is a really delicious recipe but i would recommend starting the sweet potatoes in the oven for 10-15minutes before adding the lamb steaks

I cooked this meal for a romantic night in, and wow it was good. Great flavours, simple but effective. Goes great with roasted carrots. Start cooking the potatoes before adding the meat as it does take longer to cook than stated.

Extremely tasty dish - would also recommend putting in the sweet potatoes in for 10-15 mins before adding the lamb.
