Rack of lamb

Quick to prepare
This recipe should take 40 minutes to prepare and cook. Preheat your oven to 230C. In a large bowl, combine some fresh breadcrumbs, finely chopped garlic, chopped fresh rosemary, salt and black pepper to taste. Use a little olive oil to help the mixture to stick together. Take a seven bone trimmed rack of lamb, and season all over with salt and pepper. Heat an oven proof pan, and with a little olive oil, seal the rack of lamb on all sides. Leave the lamb to one side for a few minutes before brushing all over with Dijon mustard. Then, cover the lamb in the breadcrumb mixture until it is evenly coated. Return the lamb to the oven proof pan, and cook in the oven for around 15 minutes depending on how you would like it to cook. Allow it to rest before carving between the ribs.

Chicken fried rice

This recipe can easily be adapted. Add extra ingredients, or omit some that you prefer not to include. It takes less than 15 minutes to prepare and cook. Beat one egg lightly, and after melting a little butter in a hot pan, add the egg and cook flat for one or two minutes. Remove from the pan and cut into shreds. Using the same pan, heat a little oil, add some sliced onions, peppers and mushrooms until soft. Add some cooked rice, cooked diced chicken and soy sauce. Combine the ingredients together, and stir fry for about five minutes ensuring that it does not stick to the bottom. Add the shredded egg and serve.

Fillet steak with a rich balsamic glaze

A quick dinner for two
It takes little preparation and more than ten minutes to cook. It is ideal if it is served with fresh vegetables and new potatoes. Season two fillet steaks, the size of your choice, with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Heat a non-stick pan over a medium heat, place the steaks in the pan sealing them on both edges for one minute each. Reduce the heat and add some balsamic vinegar and red wine. Cook the steaks for four minutes on each side, basting the meat with the sauce when they are turned. Remove the steaks to plates for service, glazing the sauce over the steaks.
