This all-in-one roast lamb recipe is simple to make and the perfect Sunday roast dinner alternative. It combines tender lamb steaks, soft and crisp roast potatoes and sweet red onion together to make a mouth-watering dinner that is sure to become a family favourite. We’ve added a few cherry tomatoes for a five-a-day boost but this is delicious with an extra side of veg. Green favourites like broccoli and peas are delicious with the gravy and will add another colour to the dish. If it’s a weekend then you could drink the rest of the bottle of wine with your meal, you deserve a treat!

Use 4 lamb chops instead of the steaks, if you prefer. For a lower-budget version, replace the wine with 100ml stock and drizzle with about a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar before serving.
