Lamb With Spinach

"Lamb and spinach is always a good combination in Indian curries. Not Indian but very nice is this Greek style dish which has that combination. It is very simple and this was "born" after a holiday in Greece and trying to re-create the taste and with that the memories of a holiday! My husband likes this with rice, I prefer it with orzo."

  • Sprinkle salt and pepper over the cubed lamb, heat the oil in a dutch oven and brown the meat on all sides.

  • Was the spinach and cook for about 5-7 minutes, without adding any water, drain very well and chop roughly.
  • When the lamb had its cooking time, add the spinach together with the oregano and the lemon juice.

    This was really really good! We did increase the garlic a bit. We served with rice, even the baby loved it!

    This is probably one of the easiest, yet best lamb dishes I've ever made. I didn't make any changes to the recipe and I was very pleased. The feta cheese sprinkle was like icing on the cake. I will make this again and maybe add some sliced mushrooms to it. Thanx for a versatile, easy and tasty dish. Your memory lives on.

    This was very nice. I added some chopped spring onion as well onion to the lamb and added the spinach raw (washed, drained and roughly chopped). There was a lot of juice so I added in 1/4 cup of rice, making the recipe a bit more like a Greek lamb fricasse. My husband and I liked it but the kids were less enthusiastic sadly. A nice dish if your family eats spinach.

    This was very very good. I added two more garlic cloves, minced, at the end, just for some bite. Otherwise, made it exactly as stated. My family loved it. Next time (and there will be a next time), I'll increase the amount of spinach.

    Lovely variation of a family favourite. I increased the garlic to 8 flakes, added a little ginger (by force of habit) and used homemade feta cheese. Confess to having used a little chopped green chilli too :(. Very Very nice Pets!! Will be making it again. :) Fay


Hello, my name is Bonnie and I am a very beautiful cat as you can see if you look at the picture at the top of this page.... What??.. I am supposed to talk about you??? But it says here: About Me!! Well all right then ...... My mom is Dutch and has moved to England in October 2007, after living 15 years in the Netherlands with my English dad. They don’t have any human children and “created” their own family, which means I have to share them with Hannah, she is a 6 years old tortie cat, Abby the dog, she is a 9 year old Beagle, and a one year old black Miniature Pincher named Poppy, I refuse to tell you my age but I am a georgious lilac British Shorthair cat!! It is obvious she adores pets just by looking at her name she uses on Zaar (many on Zaar call her Pets or Petsie Poo), her name in real life is Annelies and that is a common Dutch name. My mom always liked to cook, but since she joined Zaar it got out of control, and it doesn’t help that she is disorganized. Printed recipes everywhere in the house, the recipe binders have got bigger and just between you and me, her hips too!!! I have lived in Holland all of my life until now, but they lived in several different countries/places:- desert and coastal Oman, up North and West in Holland, Vancouver-Canada, Aberdeen- Scotland and in Norway they lived in Bergen and Oslo. We have all moved together to England, as you can see I’ve already learnt the language! I heard her say to Dad that this is the last time she moved to another country...she's had it with moving from one place to another! ( its her age...she's getting grumpy) Mom is 55 years old but I always hear her say that the date of her birthday does not mean that much to her, the date of her cancer anniversary is more important, because so far she is a survivor. Besides cooking she has other interests too, crafts, gardening and soap making. She likes Zaar and is one of the hosts on the German-Benelux Forum here on RecipeZaar. She would like to thank everybody who tries and comments on the recipes she has posted on Recipezaar, your feedback is very much appreciated. <img src=""> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src=""> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src=""> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"><a href="" target="_blank"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"></a><a href="" target="_blank"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"></a>
