This rich, wintery dish is classic Andrew Clarke - bold, elegant, and delicious. The recipe sees sirloin steak paired with puy lentils and a puffed barley 'risotto' which includes bacon, mushrooms, and butternut squash.

This hearty dish can be easily adapted to a regular risotto by switching the grains for rice, though we would recommend Vialone Nano rice and adjusting the cooking time.
