    Sticky Lamb Skewers with Redcurrant Sauce

    These succulent lamb chops, cooked in a fruity sauce, make a quick and easy meal. They’re delicious served with a pile of buttery mash.

    • Gluten Free
    • Preparation time: 5 mins, plus 5-10 minutes marinating
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes to 20 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes to 35 minutes 35 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 4 tbsp red wine vinegar
    • 2 tbsp redcurrant jelly
    • ½ x 15g pack fresh rosemary
    • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
    • 4 British lamb loin chops, from the chiller cabinet
    • 1 tbsp olive oil


    1. In a shallow, non-metallic dish, mix together the red wine vinegar and redcurrant jelly. Strip the leaves from the rosemary stalks, set a few aside to garnish, then finely chop the remainder. Stir into the redcurrant jelly mixture along with the garlic.
    2. Cut 4 wooden skewers down by about a third and use them to spear the chops. This will hold them in place during cooking. Add the lamb to the redcurrant jelly marinade and leave for 5-10 minutes, turning once.
    3. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the lamb with its marinade and cook for 15-20 minutes, turning halfway through, until the meat is cooked to your liking and the sauce has reduced to a sticky consistency.
    4. Garnish the lamb with the reserved rosemary and serve with mashed potato and steamed purple-sprouting broccoli.
