  1. First, prepare the marinade. Mix together the vinegar, sugar, and soy sauce, then pour over the lamb. Let marinate at room temperature for 5 minutes, or up to 2 hours, if time permits.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Place the lamb chops in a roasting pan, season well with salt and pepper, and add the rosemary sprigs. Roast in the oven for 20-30 minutes until cooked to your liking.
  3. While the lamb is cooking, add the broccoli to a pan of boiling salted water, and cook for about 10 minutes until soft. Drain, keeping the broccoli in the pan, then mash gently with a fork. Now squeeze in the lemon juice and stir in the chile, a pinch of salt, and some black pepper. Serve immediately with the lamb chops and a dollop of mint jelly on the side.
  • Cheat...Use a ready-made paste to coat the lamb, such as a pesto or a tapenade.
