Oranges and lamb are a great combination because the tangy citrus flavour offsets the fuller flavour of the lamb.

Stir-Fried Lamb with Orange

Serves: 4

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 30 minutes

 

Ingredients:

450 g/1 lb minced (ground) lamb

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1 tsp cumin seeds

1 tsp ground coriander

1 red onion, sliced

finely grated zest and juice of 1 orange

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 orange, peeled and segmented

salt and pepper

snipped fresh chives, to garnish

 

Directions:

Heat a wok or large, heavy-based (skillet), without adding any oil.

Add the minced (ground) lamb to the wok. Dry fry the minced (ground) lamb for 5 minutes, or until the lamb is evenly browned. Drain away any excess fat from the wok.

Add the garlic, cumin seeds, coriander and red onion to the wok and stir-fry for a further 5 minutes.

Stir in the finely grated orange zest i and juice and the soy sauce, mixing until thoroughly combined. Cover, reduce the heat and leave to simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes.

Remove the lid, increase the heat and add the orange segments. Stir to mix.

Season with salt and pepper to taste and heat through for a further 2-3 minutes.

Transfer the stir-fry to warm serving plates and garnish with snipped fresh chives. Serve immediately.

COOK’S TIP

If you wish to serve wine with your meal, try light, dry white wines and lighter Burgundy-style red wines as they blend well with Oriental food.

Bon Appétit!
