DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  • Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes.
  • Drain, cool and chop.
  • Lightly brush a 9x13 inch pan with melted butter.
  • Place 1 phyllo sheet in pan and lightly brush with butter. (Of course, I prefer to brush it with olive oil instead of butter.).
  • Continue adding phyllo sheets for a total of 12, brushing each one lightly with butter (you don't need to completely cover each phyllo sheet).
  • Spread cooked rice over phyllo, then sprinkle with minced garlic.
  • Add lamb in an even layer, and sprinkle with lemon juice.
  • Place 1 cup diced potatoes over lamb.
  • Arrange quarters of eggs, then sprinkle with parsley, mint and lemon zest.
  • Add crumbled feta cheese.
  • Pour on olive oil and beef broth.
  • Sprinkle with oregano and pepper.
  • Finally, add beaten egg.
  • Top with remaining 12 phyllo sheets brushed lightly with melted butter (or olive oil :D).
  • Bake for 40 to 50 minutes at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  • During the last 10 minutes, raise the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Remove from the oven and cool on a rack for 15 minutes.
  • Cut into diamonds or squares and serve warm.
  • I like to serve this with sour cream, or even homemade tzatziki.
