What Can I Make With Ground Lamb Meat?
- The Greek dish Moussaka is very similar to lasagna but uses slices of egg plant in place of pasta sheets. Layers of seasoned ground lamb are sandwiched between strips of eggplant and topped with a white bechamel sauce. The whole thing is baked like lasagna with a topping of parmesan, pecarino or mizithra cheese.
- The British dish Shepherd's pie is a simple, comforting meal including ground lamb. The ground lamb is cooked with beef broth, carrots, peas and whichever vegetables the cook might want to add. The stew-like mixture is then topped with mashed potatoes and a good melting cheese and baked until the topping is golden brown.
- Lamb Keema is a dish that can be found on Indian restaurant menus, but is thought to have originated in Persia. It is similar in some ways to Texan chili and contains things like ground lamb, tomatoes, cumin, coriander, turmeric, onions and garlic. Keema can be served as a dish in its own right or as a stuffing for naan bread or other meats.
