Tournedos Style Lamb Patties

ingredients

serves 6
600 g (1 lb 6 oz) lean minced lamb
1 Spanish onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
25 g (1 oz) butter
30 ml (2 tbsp) olive oil
50 g (2 oz) fresh white breadcrumbs
45 - 60 ml (3 - 4 tbsp) milk
45 ml (3 tbsp) freshly chopped parsley
1.5 ml (1/4 tsp) dried oregano
10 ml (2 tsp) Worcestershire sauce
1 large egg, lightly beaten
salt and freshly ground black pepper
flour for coating
about 6 fat bacon slices
watercress sprigs, to garnish

method

1. Simmer the chopped onion and garlic in half the butter and oil until soft, then cool. Soak the breadcrumbs in the milk, then squeeze out the excess moisture. Heat the grill to high.

2. Place the lamb in a large bowl. Add the onion and garlic, breadcrumbs, herbs, Worcestershire sauce and egg, and mix well. Season with salt and black pepper.

3. Divide mixture into 6. Shape each portion into a ball, then roll "in flour and flatten into patties 7.5 cm (3 in) in diameter.

4. Stretch each bacon slice thinly with the back of a knife to meet round the middle of each patty. If a slice does not reach, use an extra slice. Tie securely with string. Grill the patties for 2 - 3 minutes on each side to seal them.

5. Heat the remaining butter and oil in a large frying-pan, or 2 smaller pans, and fry the patties slowly on all sides for about 30 minutes until cooked through.

6. Discard the strings, transfer the patties to a heated serving dish and serve very hot, garnished with watercress.
