Lamb loin with cashew nuts


(Recipe supplied by Amelia Park Lamb)

Cut lamb loins across the grain into slices about ½ cm thick. Place in a bowl with light soy sauce, Shaoxing wine, and potato starch. Add 2 tbsp cold water and mix well. Set aside to marinate 30 minutes. 

In a separate bowl, mix all the sauce ingredients. 

Heat a large frypan or wok over medium-high heat. When hot, add Sichuan pepper and stir-fry until fragrant, about 30 seconds. (Take care not to burn them.)  

Add marinated lamb, turn up the heat to high and stir-fry for 2–3 minutes, stirring constantly. 

Add garlic, ginger and spring onions. Stir through (about 30 seconds), then add capsicum and cashews. Stir 30 seconds more. 

Give the sauce a quick stir, then add to the lamb, stirring until it thickens. 

To serve

Divide the lamb among four warm bowls and serve with blanched broccolini.
