Method

Remove Silver Fern Farms Lamb Steaks from the fridge and packaging and allow to bloom at room temperature for 10 mins.

Combine all spices and cornflour in a screw-top jar. Shake to combine. Use about half of the spice mix as a rub, massaging it well into the Lamb Steaks. Combine remaining mix with apricots and juice in a food processor. Blend to combine. Set aside.

Heat sesame oil in a saucepan and sauté almonds, taking care they do not burn. Remove almonds with a slotted spoon.

Add rice to saucepan and sauté for a few seconds to coat the rice in the fragrant oil. Add 1 ¼ cups water to rice. Add ½ tsp of salt. Bring to the boil. Lower heat to a simmer and cook rice for 10 mins.

Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a frying pan and cook Lamb Steaks on medium-high heat for 3-4 mins each side. Remove Lamb Steaks from pan and rest on a serving platter. Deglaze pan with chicken stock. Add apricot-spice mixture to pan. Cook stirring constantly until a sauce is formed. Slice Lamb Steaks thickly and rest.

Pile rice into a serving bowl. Sprinkle with toasted almonds and serve with apricot sauce. Garnish Lamb Steaks with fresh coriander and nasturtium flowers.
