Cooking Method For Spicy Lamb Leg Steak

Remove the steaks from the fridge, pop onto a shallow plate, cover and leave for 20 minutes to bring up to room temperature before cooking. If you are cooking over coals remember to light them well in advance so they are white all over before you start cooking.

To prepare the chilli butter; in a small bowl mix together the butter, chilli flakes and herbs.  Mould the butter into a sausage shape, wrap in cling film or foil and refrigerate until required.

Brush the steaks with oil on both sides.  Mix together the dried chillies and herbs and sprinkle over the steaks.

Cook on a prepared barbecue or under a preheated moderate grill for 6-8 minutes on each side, or until any meat juices run clear.

Top with a disc or two of the chilli butter and serve with warm crushed new potatoes with a knob of the chilli butter stirred through and a tomato and cucumber salad.
