Ingredients

800g Lamb leg steaks, trimmed of fat (2 per person)
Marinade
2 cloves Garlic, crushed
1 tbsp Chopped jalapenos
Juice of 1 lime
1 tbsp Finely chopped coriander root and stem
1 tbsp Coarsely chopped coriander leaves
2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
Vegetables
2 Roma tomatoes, thickly sliced
2 bunches Asparagus, trimmed
4 Corn cobs
To serve
Lime wedges
Coriander sprigs

Method

1 Combine marinade ingredients and pour half over the lamb. Turn lamb in the marinade to coat evenly. Marinate for 10-30 minutes, until you're ready to cook. Reserve remaining marinade for serving.
2 Preheat a barbecue or grill pan until very hot. Cook corn for 10 minutes, turning often to char them evenly. Cook asparagus for 2-3 minutes and tomatoes for 1-2 minutes.
3 Cook lamb on barbecue or grill pan for 2-2½ minutes per side for medium. Rest for 5-10 minutes, then slice and serve with vegetables and the reserved marinade.
4 Switch to make: CHILEAN INSPIRED LAMB WRAPS: Slice the leftover lamb and fill Lebanese bread with cooked rice, beans and salad, topped with hummus and mashed avocado.

Tips

1 Try fresh red or green chillies instead of jalapeños.
2 Marinate the lamb the night before for a more intense flavour.
3 Try lamb rump, cutlets or eye of loin if you can’t find leg steaks.
