Lamb Cutlets With Mint Sauce


  • 5-6 lamb cutlets
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint leaves (about 1 bunch), a few leaves reserved for decoration
  • 100g caster or superfine sugar
  • 1/4 cup water from a recently boiled kettle
  • 1/3 cup white wine vinegar


  1. Make mint sauce first as the lamb cutlets are quick to cook. Dissolve the sugar in the water in a bowl. Add the mint leaves and white wine vinegar to the bowl and sit for 15 minutes. Blend to create a paste.
  2. In the meantime, cook the lamb. Season with salt and pepper and heat a frypan on medium to high heat. Add oil and fry the lamb cutlets for 3 minutes on each side for medium rare cutlets. Serve in the pan with a few fresh mint leaves on top and the mint sauce on the side
Serves 2.
