  • Dumplings:
  • Sift the flour into a large bowl. Rub the butter into the flour to resemble breadcrumbs, and then stir in the mint.

  • Sauce:
  • Melt 1 oz butter in a large pan and fry the shallots until browned. Add the garlic, rosemary and bay leaf, and then pour in the wine and the stock.
  • Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and carefully place in the dumplings. Cover tightly and simmer for 10-12 minutes until dumplings are fluffy, but still firm.
  • Season the lamb. Melt remaining butter in a large fry pan and fry the noisettes for 3-5 minutes on each side until browned and cooked to your liking.
  • Using a slotted spoon, place the dumplings and shallots on a plate and keep warm with the noisettes.
  • Strain the red wine sauce into the pan in which the lamb was cooked. Add the redcurrant jelly and stir to incorporate any of the lamb cooking juices.
  • Simmer gently until the jelly melts.
  • You can reduce the sauce down a little at this stage until it becomes slightly thick and sticky, but it’s not essential-just a matter of preference.
  • Pour a little sauce over each serving of lamb, shallot and dumpling and serve the rest separately.
