Method

Lamb Marinade

Mix together the oregano, garlic and oil in a bowl. Rub all over the lamb and season with salt and pepper.

Set aside to marinate for at least 20 minutes or overnight in the fridge. Allow the lamb to return to room temperature before cooking.

When ready to cook, place into a frying pan over a moderate heat. Cook for about 4 minutes on each side until well browned or cooked to your liking.

Remove the lamb steaks from the heat, cover and rest in a warm place.

Cous Cous

Cook the cous cous as directed on the packet.

Fluff up with a fork so there are no lumps and mix through all the remaining ingredients, seasoning with the salt and pepper to taste.

Serve the lamb on the cous cous with extra mint, parsley and coriander leaves sprinkled on top.
