Quick Mustard Lamb with Rosemary Potatoes

This is a handy recipe, from Donna Hay's "No Time To Cook", for those nights when dinner needs to be out on the table quick-smart in 30 minutes' time. Adding sugar to the mustard glaze promotes a wonderful caramelising effect that intensifies the flavours and produces a rich, glossy finish on the lamb. I omitted the frozen peas and in its place cooked a few peeled baby carrots with the chat potatoes.

Serves 2:
- 30g butter
- 600g chat potatoes, thickly slicked
- ½ cup (125ml) beef stock
- 1 tbs rosemary leaves
- ¾ cup (90g) frozen peas
- 350g lamb back-straps (or lamb chops or cutlets)
- 2 tbs wholegrain mustard
- 1 tbs brown sugar

Heat butter in a medium non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the potatoes, stock and rosemary. Cover and cook for 10 minutes. Add the peas and cook for a further 3 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Remove from the pan and keep warm.

Wipe out the pan and place over a medium-high heat. Spread lamb with combined mustard and sugar.

Cook for 3 minutes each side (less if it is cutlets) or until cooked to your liking. Serve with the warm vegetables.
