Remove from the pan. Melt the remaining butter or margarine and fry the lamb until browned on both sides, then place two of the fillets in a casserole dish (Dutch oven) just large enough to hold them.

Season to taste, then pour over the lamb. Cover and cook in a preheated oven at 180C/350F/gas mark 4 for 1.5 hours until the meat is tender. Slice the meat on to a warm serving dish and sprinkle with the remaining nuts. Strain the sauce into a sauce boat and serve separately with boiled new potatoes and French beans.
