  • 2 packs 2 Essential British Lamb Leg Steaks
  • 1 tbsp Cooks' Ingredients Peppery Pul Biber, plus extra to serve
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 400g can essential Chick Peas, drained
  • 1 avocado, peeled and stoned
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • Cooks' Ingredients Unwaxed Lemons, juiced
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • ½ x 25g pack flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped
  • ½ x 15g pack oregano
  • ½ x 25g pack mint
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 4 flatbreads (such as Deli Kitchen folded flatbread or Crosta & Mollica Piadina), to serve


  1. Sprinkle the lamb leg steaks with the pul biber, 1 tbsp olive oil and some seasoning. Cover and chill for an hour, if possible. Meanwhile, put the chick peas, avocado, garlic, the juice of 1 lemon and 1 tbsp olive oil into the small bowl of a food processor. Blitz until coarsely blended, then add the tahini, followed by 2 tbsp cold water. Season. Spoon into a bowl, then clean the food processor.

  2. Put the parsley, oregano, mint and 2 tbsp olive oil into the small bowl of a food processor. Blitz, then add the remaining lemon juice and honey, and a splash of water if needed, to loosen. Season. Spoon into a bowl and set aside.

  3. Preheat a griddle until smoking hot. Cook the lamb for 3-6 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness (add an extra 30 seconds for well done). Rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Griddle the flatbreads to warm through.

  4. Divide the houmous between 4 plates, then top with the sliced lamb steaks. Drizzle with the herb dressing and an extra sprinkling of pul biber, then serve with the sliced flatbreads on the side.
