I could definitely eat a plate of that. Thanks for posting it. As a process, this recipe looks interesting to me. All this about lamb lately. I have very little experience with it. Maybe I should rethink that.

Ahron, would lamb breast be appropriate for this? I have some in the freezer.

    It reads and looks amazing!  But as good as it sounds I could imagine the flavor and aroma of this dish far surpass your wonderful post.

    This one is tagged for another day...thanks for sharing!!!

Ahron, your kleftiko looks absolutely delicious! I wish lamb were more accessable around here!!! I suppose venison or perhaps even pork night work, so it is on my list ~
 
great job, my friend, a beautiful and easy meal that looks to be loaded with flavour ~

Ahron,

Looks like quite a Mediterranean feast ...

At DELFO´s Greek Restaurant in the centre of Madrid Capital, the Greek owner takes this stew and stuffs it in Phyllo with Greek long grain rice.

It is quite an entrée ... I always have " doggie bags " for the next day.
