Ingredients

Lean lamb leg steak

480 g, (Buy 4x150g steaks) fat trimmed

Celery

4 individual, chopped

Fennel bulb(s)

1 large, cut into 1cm pieces

Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Serve with chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley and steamed broccolini. TIPS: You can also use black or regular green olives instead of Sicilian olives. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 2 months. Reheat in the microwave or in a saucepan on the stovetop.
