    Cumin lamb with fatoush pitta salad

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes 25 minutes

    Serves: 4


    4 essential Waitrose lamb steaks
    1 lemon, juice
    2 tsp ground cumin
    3 tbsp essential Waitrose olive oil
    2 essential Waitrose pitta bread
    3 tbsp essential Waitrose red wine vinegar
    1 x ½ essential Waitrose cucumber, halved
    lengthways and cut into chunks
    4 essential Waitrose tomatoes, roughly chopped
    25g mint, leaves torn
    5 essential Waitrose salad onions, chopped
    2 tsp crushed sumac


    1. Put the steaks in a shallow dish. Stir together the lemon juice, cumin and 1 tbsp oil, then smear over the lamb. Set aside for 10 minutes.

    2. Meanwhile, toast the pitta bread lightly and when cool enough to handle, tear into bite-sized chunks. Stir together the remaining oil and the vinegar in a large bowl. Add the pitta, cucumber, tomatoes, mint and salad onions. Sprinkle over the sumac, season and toss everything together. Set aside; the bread will soften slightly while it sits.

    3. Heat a griddle pan over a high heat. Season the lamb and cook for 4 - 5 minutes per side for medium rare. Serve with the pitta salad on the side.
