Or solo Red Wine Lentils for Vegetarians
What you'll need:
- 1 garlic clove
- Some sea salt
- 150g lamb steak
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Freshly ground black pepper
For the Lentils
- 100g tinned lentils, drained
- 200ml red wine
- 50g butter
- 1 bay leaf
- Salt and black pepper
Time: 30 minutes
Place the garlic and the salt in a pestle and mortar (or crush with a spoon) and mix together to make a paste. Stir in the olive oil, and then slather the whole lot over your lamb steak. Leave to marinate for 10 minutes.
Chargrill the lamb for 5 minutes on each side (or to your liking) on a griddle pan. Season well, then put to one side.
Make the lentils simply by pouring them into a saucepan along with the red wine and bay leaf. Simmer for 10 minutes, then stir in the butter and season well. To serve, make a bed of lentils on a plate, and place the lamb on top, cut into slices.
This dish deserves to be paired with juicy and supple Dal Zotto Barbera 2017. This wine is a winner with flavourful meats such as this lamb dish!
