  1. Put the potatoes and stock cube in a pan and cover with water. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 18 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the dukkah and olive oil together in a shallow dish. Add the lamb steaks and coat in the dukkah. Set aside for 5 mins to marinate.
  3. Using a fork, mash the feta in a bowl, stir in the yogurt and mint and season with black pepper.
  4. In a nonstick frying pan set over a medium-high heat, fry the marinated steaks for 3 mins on each side, or until cooked to your liking. Remove from the pan and rest for 5 mins.
  5. Drain the potatoes. Return the empty pan to the heat and add the spinach, in batches, to wilt. Once the spinach is softened, return the potatoes to the pan and mix well to combine. Serve the lamb with the spinach and potatoes and a spoonful of the creamed feta.
