Greek-Style Lamb With Rice

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Miss Annie

This simple recipe, made with ground lamb, borrows some of the flavors from Greek specialties, but takes only a few minutes to put together and serve for a speedy supper. Serve with a Greek style salad for a complete meal. This also freezes well.

This is so very good! I added a wee bit more garlic (we adore it!) and when I needed more liquid I added some white wine. After it was done I tasted it and felt it needed salt (I must be on a sodium kick)so I added it. Tasted again and still not enough for ME, so I added a generous squirt of ketchup,(I'm sorry, I just HAD to) and then it was sodium perfection for me! Serve this over rice pilaf instead of white rice and was in heaven. Thanks for the quick, easy, tasty dinner recipe. It will be a repeat!
