Boil the kettle. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Peel and cut the potato into 2cm chunks. Add the potato to the saucepan of boiling water and cook until easily pierced with a knife, 10-15 minutes. Drain and return the potato to the saucepan. Add 1/2 the butter and salt and mash using a potato masher or fork until smooth. Cover with a lid to keep warm.


Thinly slice the carrot (unpeeled) into half-moons. Cut the broccoli into small florets and roughly chop the stalk. Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press).


In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat. Add the carrot and broccoli and cook until tender, 5-6 minutes. TIP: Add a splash of water to help the veggies cook evenly. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside in a bowl and cover to keep warm.

Return the frying pan to a high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Season the lamb leg steaks on both sides with salt and pepper. Once the pan is very hot, add the lamb and cook for 2 minutes on each side (depending on thickness). TIP: This will give you a medium-rare lamb steak. Cook for a little less if you like it rare, or a little longer for well done. Transfer to a plate, cover with foil and set aside to rest, 5 minutes.

Pick the mint leaves and finely chop. Return the frying pan to a medium heat and add the remaining butter. Add the mint and cook for 2-3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add lamb resting juices and stir through.
