KLEFTICO: Slow cooked and succulent.

Lamb kleftiko is a delicious Greek casserole. It's a great change from your usual meat stew. The flavours are simple but delicious and the slow-cooked lamb will melt in your mouth.

700g lamb, diced (I use leg chops when they're on special; lamb shoulder also works well but is a lot fattier)
2 garlic cloves, crushed or finely chopped
4 medium tomatoes, diced
1 onion, sliced
2 carrots, diced
1 lemon, juiced
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Handful fresh oregano, finely chopped (or 1 tsp dried oregano)
250ml chicken stock
Salt and pepper, to taste
Feta cheese, crumbled, for serving

2. Sprinkle with the crumbled feta and a little more oregano and serve.

3. Serve with roast potatoes, sprinkled with the rind from the lemon.
