This is a delicious dish I made a while back and am only getting around to showing you now. It's a delicious Greek Stew made with lamb shoulder, tomatoes, wine and a variety of spices. It may not look like much, but it's really fabulous!
It's the perfect dish for this time of year when the temperatures are freezing and you are wanting something to eat that is not only filling, but also warm and comforting. I love comfort food and this is what I would call Greek Comfort Food.
Lamb shoulder can tend to be a bit fatty, so do try to trim it as best as you can. I love the succulence of it however . . . fat does add flavour to any meat . . . and lends itself well to slow cooking meals such as this.
I have never been to Greece, but it is a country I have always wanted to visit. Ever since I was a young girl and saw Haley Mills in the film, "The Moonspinners." It created a yearning in me to go to Greece, which I have yet to fulfil.
I believe I will make it one day. After all I never ever dreamed I would one day be living in England, and look at me now. In the meantime I will just have to content myself with cooking the odd Greek dish or two and dreaming . . .
This is delicious and warming . . . succulent lamb flavoured with a mix of oregano, parsley and warm cinnamon . . . oven braised in a mix of stock, tomatoes, onions and red wine. I served it with mashed potatoes to please my potato loving man, but rice would be equally as good.
