Mary, Help of Christians, is the patroness of Australia. Why not try an Australian recipe for this feast?


Combine the tomato sauce, honey soy sauce, jam, mustard and Worchestershire sauce in a bowl. Arrange the lamb cutlets in a large, shallow casserole dish and top with a tablespoon of the mixture. Microwave on HIGH for 5 minutes, then turn each cutlet over, spoon on more sauce and cook for another 3 minutes on HIGH. If cutlets are a little thick, allow an extra 30 seconds to 1 minute. Transfer to a serving plate. Cover and allow to stand for 2 minutes. Reheat sauce and spoon over cutlets, sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve with pineapple wedges and garnish with fresh herbs.

If you wish to cook these on the barbeque, pre-cook cutlets in the microwave on HIGH for 4 minutes, then barbeque brushing the sauce on as they continue to cook.
