Pan Fried Steaks with Pesto Sauce


1. Prepare the parsley pesto: Place all the pesto ingredients except the extra virgin olive oil in a food processor or blender and mix. Scrape any pesto from the sides of the bowl before slowly adding the oil, until a thick green sauce is achieved. If a thinner sauce is required add more oil.
2. Heat the sunflower oil in a non-stick pan and fry the lamb steaks according to preference. Remove from the pan and keep warm.
3. Add the crËme fraÓche, milk, 1-2 tbsps of the parsley pesto and the tomatoes, if using. Season and simmer gently for 1-2 minutes.
4. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley and serve the steaks with the sauce, baby new potatoes and dressed salad leaves.
