Instructions

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large frying pan and gently fry the onion on a low heat until soft (about 10 minutes).
  2. Meanwhile, cook the potatoes in boiling salted water for 15 minutes, or until tender. Drain, then return to the pan and leave to steam dry.
  3. Add the redcurrant jelly, balsamic vinegar and 3 tablespoons of water to the onions. Cook, stirring, until thickened and sticky but still a little saucy, then scrape into a bowl.
  4. Rub the lamb chops with 1 tablespoon olive oil, season, then fry in the same pan for 3 minutes on each side until charred and caramelised. Transfer to a plate, cover with foil, and leave to rest for a few minutes.
  5. Put the pan of cooked potatoes onto a low heat, add the butter, milk and season. Mash well until smooth.
  6. In a separate bowl, mix the coleslaw with mayonnaise of your choice .
