RECIPE TIPS
TRY A QUICK STIR-FRY

Lamb & ginger stir-fry: Rub lamb steaks with Chinese five spice powder, grill as before. Finely slice courgettes, halve tomatoes & finely shred a small knob of ginger. Heat oil in a wok, add courgettes, tomatoes & ginger and stir-fry for about 3 mins until the courgette starts to soften. Add the garlic, fry for 1 min, then splash in 2 tbsp soy sauce. Slice the lamb steaks and add to the pan just before serving, along with their juices. Scatter with coriander & serve with rice or noodles.
