Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Serves: 4 


3 teaspoons olive oil

8 lamb cutlets, each about 125g (4 oz)

250g (8 oz) chestnut mushrooms, quartered

4 tablespoons reduced-sugar redcurrant jelly

Watercress, to garnish

Mustard Mash

1.5kg (3 lb) floury potatoes, peeled and cut into equal-sized chunks

125ml (4 fl oz) hot semi-skimmed milk

1 tablespoon low-salt wholegrain mustard

Knob of unsalted butter 

1. To make the mash, place the potatoes in a large saucepan of boiling water and simmer for 20 minutes or until tender. Drain well and return to the saucepan, add the hot milk, mustard and butter and mash well.

2. Meanwhile, heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a nonstick frying pan and fry the lamb cutlets for 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan and keep warm. Add the remaining oil and cook the mushrooms for 2-3 minutes. Add the redcurrant jelly and cook for a further 2-3 minutes.

3. Spoon the potato on to 4 plates, place the lamb on top of the mash and pour over the mushrooms and any remaining pan juices. Garnish with watercress and serve.
