Lamb Steak

Lamb Steak with Cider and Honey Sauce

2 lamb leg steaks, each piece weighing 150g to 200g
Pinch of Anglesey salt
Pinch of black pepper
3 sprigs of fresh rosemary, roughly chopped
1 lemon, zest only
1 tablespoon of olive oil

The sauce:

1/2 an onion, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
200ml of cider
1/2 tablespoon of Welsh honey

In a pestle and mortar, grind together the salt, pepper, rosemary and lemon zest and then rub the mixture over the meat.

Heat the oil in a frying pan. Cook the meat for around 4 minutes on each side and then place on a clean plate.

The sauce:
Using the same frying pan, fry the onions and garlic until soft.

Add the cider and boil for 2 minutes.

Add the honey to the mixture at the end.

To serve, place the steak in the middle of the plate with the sauce around the steak.

Notes: This came from a website in Wales with a television cooking show that features someone named Dudley. I haven't really turned up any information on his background, but I got to play with the metric side of my measuring cups. As for the recipe itself, I substituted a couple shallots for the onion but otherwise followed it fairly closely.

I remember this being tasty, but I can't remember just what aspects of the flavor I liked the best, so it apparently didn't leave all that great of an impression. It was definitely a nice tender cut of lamb though.
