  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 2 tbsp cinnamon

  • 450ml chicken stock

  • 800g chopped tomato

  • 2 red onion chopped

  • 1 handful cheese grated (optional)

  • 2 cinnamon stick

  • 2 tbsp oregano

  • 1kg lamb chopped into cubes

  • 700g orzo pasta


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 160C. Add the onions to a large pot (with a lid for later on) .
  2. Place the lamb in the pot with oregano, cinnamon, cinnamon sticks and the olive oil.
  3. Bake in the oven uncovered for 45 minutes, stirring once.
  4. Remove from the oven. Add two tins of chopped tomatoes and the chicken stock.
  5. Put on the lid and then return to the oven for another 45 minutes.
  6. Add orzo shaped pasta to the pot and cook for a further 20 minutes. The orzo soaks up the juices of the dish so a little water may be needed so check after the dish has been in the oven for 10 minutes.
  7. Serve with grated cheese on top if you like.

Handy Hint

Make the meat part the day before to allow the flavours to develop. This is also a fantastic freezer dish - you can even freeze it with the orzo in it adding a little water to it when you reheat it.
