Greek Lamb and Orzo Recipe
Orzo pasta is simmered with tomatoes and browned lamb in this Greek-inspired dish.
This slow roasted lamb recipe could become your favorite part of Easter, especially if you love orzo pasty and tangy feta cheese.
This was very good and filling but a little fatty for my taste. I should have drained the fat after browning the lamb but since I added chopped onions thought I would need the grease to sauté them. I also added lemon juice, oregano, Italian seasoning and topped with feta and chopped parsley. Served it with a baguette, Greek salad and watermelon/feta salad. Nice combo.
Very easy, and very good...so good my 5 year old even loved it. I pretty much made it as is, but used Franks Red Hot sauce in place of the cayenne. I also used whole tomatoes, instead of stewed...will probably use diced tomatoes next time. I did try it with the feta, which was very good too. Thanks for the recipe!

an easy version of a time consuming classic. It's very basic, too. My own version of this has a leg of lamb and uses oregano, lemon, and feta cheese as well as the ingredients you listed. I was taught using the "handful" measuring method, so I'm not sure about quantities. Still, this takes about 1/10 the time and is very tasty :). Thank you for sharing! I'll be making this again for sure. Definitely try adding feta if you're looking for suggestions. It does wonders for this recipe.
