Whether it's spring or not, treat yourself to lamb! A small leg serves 6 and is surprisingly low in fat. The crowning jewel of a fresh mint sauce simmers up in seconds, yet tastes as if it took much more time.
*Although lamb and mint sauce is a traditional pairing, you can prepare a 1kg (2¼lb) joint of lean boneless beef or pork in the same way.
*Serve this dish with steamed asparagus and roast new potatoes.
Lamb is a rich-tasting meat. Over the years it has become much leaner due to consumer demand for less fatty meats. While still not as lean as pork or poultry are, lamb is very flavourful and so can often be served in smaller portions.
