Serves 4

INGREDIENTS

For the Lamb

4 lamb rumps

2 tsp Za’tar spice blend

For the Freekeh Tabbouleh

150g freekeh

4 large vine tomatoes, deseeded and cut into small cubes

6 spring onions, thinly sliced on the diagonal

½ pomegranate, seeds only

1 red chilli, finely chopped

Large bunch of parsley leaves, roughly chopped

Small bunch of mint leaves, roughly chopped

1 lemon, zest and juice

5 tbsp good quality extra virgin olive oil

Salt and pepper

For the Tahini Dressing

100g thick Greek yoghurt

2 tbsp tahini

1 garlic clove, grated

1 tsp lemon juice

Salt and pepper

To Garnish

Toasted sesame seeds

Picked coriander leaves

  1. Combine the lamb with the Za’tar and leave to marinade for at least an hour or preferably overnight.

  2. Put the freekeh into a solid steam container and place in the Miele freestanding steam oven. Steam at 100°C for 10 minutes.

  3. When the time has elapsed, place the lamb rumps on a perforated steam container and cook alongside the freekeh for another 10 minutes at 90°C.

  4. Remove both trays from the steam oven. Heat up a large frying pan over a high heat and quickly sear the lamb rumps all over. Set them aside to rest for a couple of minutes.

  5. Mix the freekeh with the remainder of the tabbouleh ingredients and check the seasoning.

  6. To make the dressing, simply combine all the ingredients together and check the seasoning.

  7. To serve, add a large spoonful of the tabbouleh onto each plate. Slice each lamb rump into three pieces and sit it on top of the tabbouleh.

  8. Add a generous spoonful of the tahini dressing and finish the dish scattering some more Za’tar, the coriander leaves and a few sesame seeds over the lamb. Serve immediately.
