Scoop out with a slotted spoon (keep the water in the pan) and carefully tip into the hot roasting tin with some seasoning. Cook, turning now and again, for 30 minutes or until crisp and golden. Boil the carrots in the potato cooking water for 3 minutes. Scoop out (keep the water for the peas) and add to the tin with some seasoning for the final 20 minutes. Stir the rosemary into the potatoes and carrots for the final 5 minutes of cooking.

Add the grated onion to the pan with a knob of butter and cook for 5-6 minutes or until soft and golden. Stir in the flour and cook for a minute, then whisk in the lamb stock and any resting juices from the steaks, and simmer for a few minutes until slightly thickened.
