1/3 cup honey

To make the reduction, finely dice the onion and garlic. Heat a pot on a moderate heat. Add a drizzle of olive oil and sautee the onion and garlic until softened

Add the red wine, balsamic, honey and mustard seeds and bring to the boil. Reduce by ½, remove from the heat and set aside

To cook the lamb heat a fry pan on high heat. Season the lamb fillet with salt and pepper. Add some oil to the pan and brown the fillet all over and continue to cook until you have cooked to your liking ie medium rare. Spoon over the balsamic reduction. Rest the lamb for 5 minutes before slicing and serving on the roasted crushed potatoes. Poor over extra reduction and enjoy!
