Ingredients

Lamb

  • 400g Quality Mark lamb rump

Vegetables

  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 250g broccoli, cut into small florets, stalks lightly peeled, and cut into short lengths

Method

 
 

Lamb

Cut lamb into strips (about 3cm x 1cm). 

Heat a wok over a high heat. Add half of the lamb strips and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes until browned, then transfer to a plate. Add remaining lamb strips and repeat.

Add the peas and spring onion and stir-fry for a further minute.  Add the lamb strips and pour in the stock and soy sauce. Stir-fry until all is heated through and the lamb is tender, no longer than 2 minutes.

  • Have all your ingredients prepared and place in the order you are going to add them to the wok, as this recipe is all about quick cooking.
  • Keep ingredients moving when stir-frying. Cooking the meat and vegetables separately is best as it allows the meat to brown rather than stew.
  • Chinese light soy sauce is most commonly used in Chinese cooking. If a Chinese-style recipe calls for soy sauce without any more detail, assume it means light soy sauce.
  • This dish is perfect to whip up quickly after exercise, with a rich source of protein for muscle recovery.
