Boil the potatoes until tender, then drain. Heat 2 tsp of the oil in a frying pan, add the potatoes and garlic, and fry gently until golden.

Sprinkle a little salt over the potatoes, then push to the side of the pan. Remove the garlic. Season the lamb and fry alongside the potatoes for 1-2 mins each side, depending on the thickness of your steak. Remove the lamb and potatoes and leave to rest in a warm place.

Mushroom à la crème (freezes well)

Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan until it foams. Add the chopped onions and sweat on a low heat for 10 minutes or until soft, remove to a bowl.

Meanwhile cook the sliced mushrooms in a little olive oil in a hot frying pan, you may need to do this in batches. Season with salt and pepper and a tiny squeeze of lemon juice.

Add the onions to the mushrooms and then add the cream and allow to simmer for a few minutes. Season to taste and then add the parsley.

Meanwhile, blanch the beans in the simmering water for 3 mins, then drain. Return to the pan and stir through the butter.

Serve the lamb with the potatoes and beans, and the mushroom à la crème spooned over.
