- 4 cloves garlic (peeled and coarsely chopped)
- 350 milliliters double cream (or whipping)
- 800 grams waxy potatoes (medium-sized, peeled and sliced very thinly)
- 125 grams cherry tomatoes (halved)
- 25 grams parmesan cheese (grated)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 170 grams loin (lamb steaks)
- 50 grams butter
- 2 onions (peeled and diced)
- 5 sprigs rosemary
- 3 leaves
- 75 grams plain flour
- 1.5 kilograms asparagus (woody ends trimmed off)
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 2 tablespoons pine nuts (toasted)
- Put half the garlic with the cream in a small pan, bring just to a boil then simmer gently for 20 mins. Preheat the oven to 325°F.
- Divide the potato slices and tomatoes into 4 portions and layer them, alternating, into 4 individual, buttered ovenproof dishes, seasoning well. Pour the garlic cream through a sieve into a measuring cup then into the dishes. Sprinkle with Parmesan, put the dishes on a sheet pan and bake for about 45 mins.
- Heat the oil in a skilet, add the lamb steaks and cook over a high heat turning them occasionally, for 3 to 4 mins. Remove from the skillet and put on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Season well, set aside. Add 2 tbsp of the butter to the skillet with the onion and garlic and sauté for about 5 mins until translucent. Sprinkle in the chopped rosemary and seasoning. Spoon into a bowl and leave to cool for a few mins. Mix in the flour and pulse in a processor to make a crumble.
- Sprinkle the crumble over the lamb steaks. Put the rosemary sprigs on the sheet pan. Turn the oven temperature up to 400°F. Cook the lamb for 10-12 mins.
- Meanwhile, cook the asparagus in boiling salted water, adding the sugar, for about 8 mins until tender. Melt the remaining butter in a small pan until it turns light brown. Take the steaks out of the oven and let them rest for 2 mins. Arrange the steaks on plates with the drained asparagus. Sprinkle with pine nuts and drizzle with brown butter. Serve with the gratin.
