Hoi sin lamb chops

Sweet lamb chops come hot off the grill, served with mirin-dressed green beans.

Ingredients

  • 8 or 12 skinny lamb cutlets, well-trimmed
  • 400 g baby green beans
  • 1 tbsp mirin (Japanese rice wine)
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • Sea salt and pepper

Marinade

  • 3 tbsp hoi sin sauce
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp Chinese rice wine or dry sherry
  • 1/2 tsp five-spice powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Method

Combine the hoisin, soy, sesame oil, sugar, rice wine, five-spice and salt in a large bowl and coat the lamb. Leave to marinate for an hour or so, turning occasionally.

Heat a cast-iron grill until hot. Drain the cutlets and grill, turning once, until pink inside and slightly scorched outside but not burnt.

Trim the beans and cook in simmering salted water for 5 mins or until just tender. Drain and toss with mirin, sesame oil, sea salt and pepper. Serve with the lamb.
