Ask a Chef reveals the secrets of those superb dishes you ate in cafes and restaurants and wanted to try yourself.


The Star and Garter's gluten-free lamb's fryand bacon with gravy

Serves 6


About 400g lamb's fry
6 rashers bacon either left in rashers as they do, or cut into fine strips if you prefer
Maize cornflour for dusting
3 Tbsp oil|
3 Tbsp butter
2 cups white wine
2 Tbsp dark soy sauce


Clean lamb's fry, cutting out valves. Slice into strips about 3mm-4mm wide, dust with maize cornflour, salt and pepper.

Heat oil and butter in a frying pan until hot. Seal both sides of the lamb's fry quickly and set aside. In the same pan, brown the bacon. Remove bacon from pan and set aside.

Drain off as much fat as possible, leaving jus and crispy goodies. Reheat the pan with the wine, scraping up the crispy bits. Add bacon and lamb's fry then bring to boil and simmer until thickened and reduced by half. Stir in soy sauce.

Serve with hot, creamy mashed potato.
