One pot recipe: Lamb kleftiko
NEED TO KNOW
|Type of dish||Casserole|
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|
|1. Place all ingredients except the feta in a slow cooker. If you're using a slow cooker, cook for 8 hours on low or at least 4 hours on high. Alternatively, put the ingredients into a casserole dish and cook in the oven for 2 1/2 hours at 160C.
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.
