GREEK LAMB KLEFTIKO
Making the best Traditional Greek Lamb Kleftiko
Lamb Kleftiko is cooked , wrapped in grease paper (in parcels or pouches) to seal all of the juices and flavours within .
For this recipe I always choose the leg of lamb, which when cooked slowly will get very tender! You can use the leg full, that may need extra cooking time, or you can chop it in to large, bone-in portions.
Marinating the lamb kleftiko a minimum of 2 hours, or ideally over night, is a must to let the lamb to soak up all of the wonderful Mediterranean flavours .
The key step to the perfect kleftiko is to unwrap the grease paper just before it is completely done, turn the temperature up and cook a bit more to get the lamb and also the potatoes nicely brown and crispy . Lastly do not forget the Greek salad!
This delicious meal is perfect combined with a refreshing Greek salad which cuts in to the lamb flavour with all the aromas of oregano and feta!
So don't wait. Put together this traditional Greek lamb kleftiko recipe and impress everyone!
At this point it’s time to wrap the kleftiko .
Ready to serve.
