Maryland Blogger: Greek Lamb and Orzo Recipe

Greek Lamb and Orzo Recipe

Greek Lamb and Orzo Recipe

 

Ingredients

1   pound ground lamb

 2 (14.5 ounce) cans stewed tomatoes, undrained

1 stalk celery, cut into 1/2 inch pieces

1 cup uncooked orzo pasta

1/4 teaspoon salt

 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 clove garlic, minced

 

Directions

Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat.

Stir in the lamb, and cook until browned and no longer pink, breaking up into crumbles, about 5 minutes.

Stir in the tomatoes and their juice, celery, orzo, salt, cayenne pepper, and garlic.

Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the orzo is tender and has absorbed the liquid from the tomatoes, about 12 minutes.

 

Chef Dolores prepared this dish for our dinner at home. It was very good and I thought that you might enjoy the recipe as well. Our wine selection was Puglia Primitivo 2015, a red Italian wine that we enjoyed.

Good morning, Roy... as I don't eat lamb I'll need to figure out another meat to substitute for what otherwise is a great recipe.

I haven't cooked up a good Greek recipe in years.  I need to try this one.  Just happen to have Orzo in my pantry.  I just need the lamb.
