  • Serve 4 Servings


20g dried porcini mushrooms

2 tbs olive oil

1 small brown onion, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, crushed

100 goat’s cheese

2 tbs flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped

8 double lamb cutlets (see tip)

flat bread, rocket and lemon wedges, to serve


1Place the mushrooms in a small heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Stand for 10–15 minutes or until tender (see note). Drain and roughly chop.

2Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon oil in a frying pan over medium high heat. Add the onion and garlic. Cook, stirring, for 3–4 minutes or until onion is soft. Remove to a bowl. Add the mushrooms, goat’s cheese and parsley. Season with salt and pepper.

3Cut a pocket through the centre of each lamb cutlet. Fill with mushroom mixture. Secure with a toothpick.

4Preheat a barbecue plate on medium heat. Brush both sides of the lamb with remaining oil and season with salt and pepper. Barbecue lamb for 3–4 minutes on each side for medium or until cooked to your liking. Remove to a tray. Cover and stand for 5 minutes to rest. Remove the toothpicks.

5Serve with barbecued flat bread, rocket and lemon wedges.

Note: The liquid the mushrooms are in has loads of flavour. Drain liquid through a fine sieve and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 weeks. It’s great to add to gravies, sauces and risottos.

Tip: Double lamb cutlets are best ordered from the butcher. They can be 2 cutlets attached together with 2 bones, or you can ask the butcher to remove 1 of the bones, leaving you with a double cutlet with just 1 centre bone.
