Directions

  1. Make orange rice: Strain orange juice. Place orange rind, rice, stock, and 1/3 cup orange juice in a microwave-safe rice cooker or bowl. Cover with lid or 2 layers of plastic wrap. Microwave on high (100%) for 3 minutes, then on medium (50%) for 5 to 6 minutes. Stir in dates. Cover. Set aside for 5 minutes to absorb remaining liquid.
  2. Meanwhile, spread half the mustard over both sides of lamb. Coat both sides of lamb in flour. Heat butter and oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat until sizzling. Add lamb. Cook for 2 minutes on each side or until light golden. Remove to a plate. Cover.
  3. Add stock and remaining mustard to pan. Cook, stirring, for 1 to 2 minutes or until mixture comes to the boil. Return lamb to pan and turn to coat. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, uncovered, for 3 minutes or until sauce thickens slightly.
  4. Stir chives and hazelnuts into rice mixture and season with salt and pepper. Spoon rice onto plate. Top with lamb. Spoon over sauce and serve.
