Ingredients:
  • 2 Lean lamb leg steaks, cut into thin strips
  • 1 Orange, juice and rind
  • 150ml (¼ pt) Tequila
  • 2x15mlsp (2tbsp) Grenadine syrup
  • 1 Orange, peeled and segmented

Method:
Place the lamb strips in a shallow dish, add the orange juice and rind and tequila. Cover and marinate in the fridge for 2-3 hours.

Pre-heat a griddle or frying pan, drain the lamb, reserving the marinade. Cook in a hot pan for 4-5 minutes until the strips are browned.

Remove the steak from the pan and add the marinade, bring to the boil and add grenadine syrup. Reduce slightly.

Into 2 bowls layer the orange segments, salad leaves and lamb strips. Drizzle over the hot tequila sauce and garnish with pomegranate seeds - drizzle with extra grenadine if you wish.
