Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Rub the lamb with ½ tbsp of the oil and 1 garlic clove. Season well and set aside to marinate while you prepare the beans, or for up to 2 hrs if you have time.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the remaining oil in a pan. Add the onion and remaining garlic, and season. Fry for 8 mins until soft. Add the tomato purée, chopped dill, vinegar, stock and beans, season, and simmer for 15 mins or until most of the liquid has evaporated.

  • STEP 3

    Meanwhile, heat a frying pan until hot. Sear lamb on all sides, for about 5 mins in total. Rest, covered with foil, for 5 mins, then thickly slice. Serve the lamb with the beans, scattered with feta and the remaining dill leaves.
