Share This Recipe



Prep Time


Cook Time



12 Frenched lamb cutlets
2 tsp Ground cumin
1 tbsp Olive oil
1 Small onion, chopped
1 Medium red capsicum, cut into 3cm pieces
1 Medium yellow capsicum, cut into 3cm pieces
1 Medium zucchini, halved and diced
400 g Can diced tomatoes
Fresh thyme leaves


1 Brush cutlets lightly with oil. Season with salt and pepper and the cumin. Preheat the barbecue or char-grill pan to hot before adding the cutlets.
2 Cook on one side until the first sign of moisture appears. Turn cutlets once only. Test for doneness with tongs. Rare is soft, medium feels springy and well done is very firm.
3 Remove cutlets from heat, loosely cover with foil and rest cutlets for 2 minutes before serving. Serve with the Ratatouille.
4 To make the Ratatouille: Heat the oil in a large frypan. Add the onion and capsicum and cook until just soft.
5 Add the zucchini and tomatoes. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, sprinkle with thyme leaves to serve.


1 Replace the with lamb cutlets with lamb round or topside steaks.
2 You can use a brush to lightly oil the meat. Or you can use a light spray of oil.
3 Always rest meat after cooking. This gives the juices in the meat a chance to redistribute, giving a moister and more tender result. Transfer the meat to a plate and loosely cover with foil, stand the meat to rest in a warm place.
