Lamb Leg Steaks with Roasted Sweet Potatoes

I’m back after a long revision, dissertation, and exam period! Although there were no posts, I’ve got plenty of meals in the bag so stay tuned. Head to my Instagram for a few teasers.

This meal includes one of my favourites: the sweet potato. I love sweet potato fries more than regular fries actually. I’ve paired roasted sweet potatoes with pan-fried lamb leg steak, red onions, and a little salad on the side.

Serves 2

440 kcal per serving


  • 2 lamb leg steaks
  • 3 sweet potatoes, cut into evenly sized chunks
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp season-all
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 tbsp olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 200ºC (180ºC fan)/ gas mark 6.
  2. Place potatoes onto a baking tray and toss in 2 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 tsp season-all, 1/2 tsp black pepper, and 1/2 tsp paprika.
  3. Bake for 40 – 50 minutes, turning every 15 minutes.
  4. When the potatoes have reached the 30 minute mark, season the lamb with 1 tbsp olive oil and 1 tsp season-all.
  5. Heat a pan to a medium heat then place the lamb steaks in the pan.
  6. Cook for 4 minutes on each side, then take out of the pan to rest for 5 minutes.
  7. Place the sliced red onions in the pan and fry until softened.
  8. By now, the sweet potatoes should be cooked. Finish them off in the pan with the red onions, and serve with the lamb leg steaks.
  9. Enjoy with a side salad or mixed vegetables.
