A traditional Australian Sunday roast in finger food form. This was one of a trio of recipes I cooked outside historic Albury railway station, taking my inspiration from foods popular during the times of grand train travel.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
200g lamb tenderloins
salt
freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 teaspoons caster sugar
1/4 cup shredded mint leaves

Mustard pikelets

Quantity Ingredient
160g wholemeal self-raising flour
1 egg
125ml milk
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons wholegrain mustard
butter, to cook

Method

  1. To make the mustard pikelets, place the flour in a large bowl, make a well in the centre and add the egg, milk, oil and mustard. Whisk until smooth.
  2. Melt a teaspoon of butter in a large non-stick frying pan. Swirl to coat the base, then place heaped teaspoons of the pikelet mixture in the foaming butter. Cook until set around the edges, flip over and cook for another minute or until golden and cooked through. Drain on paper towel and repeat with the remaining mixture, cleaning the pan after each batch with paper towel and adding another teaspoon of butter.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in the pan over medium heat. Season the lamb with salt and pepper and cook for 3 minutes before turning and cooking for an additional minute for medium, or longer if desired. Remove from the pan, cover with foil and set aside to rest for 5 minutes before slicing into very thin slices.
  4. Whisk the white wine vinegar and caster sugar with the remaining tablespoon of oil in a medium bowl. Add the mint and sliced lamb and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve the pikelets topped with the dressed slices of lamb and the mint leaves.

Wine

  • The soft, gentle flavours of a merlot work well here.
