Crumbed Lamb Cutlets:


Mint sauce:

  1. Add all the ingredients to a bowl and give it a good stir, you can then taste it and adjust the flavour to your liking. Once you're satisfied set aside and move onto the cutlets.

Lamb Cutlets:

  1. Mix the chopped rosemary through the breadcrumbs.

  2. Dust the cutlets in flour, making sure you shake off the excess.

  3. Dip the lightly floured cutlets in the beaten egg mixture, making sure each cutlet is well coated.

  4. Let some of the excess egg drip off before adding to the bowl of breadcrumbs. Coat each cutlet in the breadcrumbs, then transfer onto a tray or plate and set aside.

  5. Pre-heat a frying pan over high heat for about 1-2 minutes, then add about 1 tablespoon of your oil.

  6. Add the crumbed cutlets and cook for about 2 - 2½ on each side for medium-rare.

  7. Let the cutlets rest for a minute or 2, then serve with the mint sauce.

Recipe Notes

  • Make the sauce and whatever else you want to make with these cutlets first, so you can then focus all of your attention on cooking the cutlets perfectly. 
  • When you coat the cutlets in flour, make sure you tap off the excess. 
  • Follow the cooking times in the post if you're not sure how long to cook the cutlets for. 
  • Make sure the lamb is at room tempurature, and the pan is nice and hot before cooking these cutlets. 
  • If you decide to grill the cutlets instead of pan fry them, I recommend that you just season the cutlets or marinade them rather than crumb them. 
  • If you do marinate the cutlets, give them a quick dab with kitchen paper before you start grilling them, just to get rid of excess moisture.
