  • 600g Quality Mark lamb rumps
  • 3/4 cup red lentils
  • 1 red capsicum
  • 1 yellow capsicum
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber
  • a small handful of parsley, chopped
  • a small handful of fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • juice and grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • A pinch of black pepper


To sear steak

  1. Heat a frying pan with a splash of oil over a high heat.
  2. Cook on one side of the lamb until moisture appears, then turn and cook the other side.
  3. Test the ‘degree of doneness’ by touching the meat – it will feel springy for medium and very firm for well done.
  4. Remove from heat and allow to rest, loosely covered with aluminium foil.

To make salad

  1. For the salad, cook lentils in boiling water for 3-4 minutes to retain texture and colour.
  2. Drain and place in cold water.
  3. Dice all vegetables and place in a bowl.
  4. Add lentils and chopped parsley and mint.
  5. Season with cumin, pepper, lemon zest and juice.
  6. Stir to combine

To serve

  1. Serve this dish with grilled lime.
