Lamb with Minted Spring Vegetables

A redcurrant sauce adds a gourmet touch to this easy midweek roast that can be cooked in less than 30 minutes.

2 x 450g lean French-trimmed lamb racks (6 cutlets each), fat trimmed

1 bunch asparagus, halved

3 small zucchini, quartered lengthways

200g green beans

1 bunch baby carrots, halved

1 cup (250ml) chicken stock

2 tbs redcurrant jelly

2 tbs small fresh mint leaves

1 Preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C fan-forced. Heat a large flameproof baking dish over medium-high heat. Lightly spray lamb with oil and cook, turning, for 5 minutes or until browned. Transfer lamb to oven and bake for 15 minutes for medium-rare or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate. Cover lamb with foil and rest for 
5 minutes before cutting cutlets from racks. Reserve pan juices.

2 Meanwhile, boil, steam or microwave asparagus, zucchini, beans and carrots, separately, until tender. Drain.

3 Heat baking dish with pan juices over medium heat. Add stock and redcurrant jelly and cook, stirring, until jelly dissolves (see tip). Bring to the boil and cook for 4–5 minutes or until slightly thickened.

4 Divide vegetables among plates and top with lamb. Drizzle with redcurrant sauce and sprinkle with mint to serve.

SERVE with: Roasted baby (chat) potatoes.

TIP: When stirring the sauce, scrape the base of the baking dish to dislodge any baked-on bits as these are full of flavour.
