Greek lamb Fricassée
Method
  • Place a wide pot over high heat and let it get very hot.
  • Add 3 tablespoons olive oil to the pieces of meat and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
  • Add the meat to the pot and sauté for about 3-4 minutes, until golden on both sides.
  • Add the water, bouillon cube and cumin.
  • Lower heat to medium and simmer for 1 hour.
  • Next, prepare the vegetables.
  • Thinly slice the spring onions and coarsely chop the lettuce. (You don’t want it to completely fall apart while cooking.)
  • Finely chop the dill and reserve some for the egg lemon sauce and for serving.
  • Add the spring onions and lettuce to the pot.
  • Cover pot with lid and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
  • When it is almost ready, prepare the egg lemon sauce.
  • In a bowl, whisk the egg yolks, salt, pepper, lemon zest and lemon juice until completely combined.
  • At this point you can also add the tahini. This is optional. Tahini helps thicken the sauce better while at the same time giving it a unique taste.
  • Add a handful of dill and stir.
  • Add a ladleful of the hot liquid from the pot to the bowl with the egg lemon sauce and continue whisking.
  • Add more ladleful’s of liquid (3-5) while continuously whisking.

  • Stir thoroughly.
