Peel the beetroot and cover with cold water, vinegar and season with salt. Bring to boil and cook until tender – add hot water during the cooking if necessary.

To make the sauce, place the oil, onion and chilli in a deep base pan and cook on low for 3-4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes, add the chopped tomatoes and 200ml of water and season with salt and pepper. Cook on low for 30 minutes making sure to stir continuously.

Melt the rest of the butter and season the lamb rack with salt and pepper, and pan roast on medium heat for 2 minutes each side. Pass the lamb on a baking tray and bake at 180C for 4 minutes.
