    Miss Annie's Note:

    This simple recipe, made with ground lamb, borrows some of the flavors from Greek specialties, but takes only a few minutes to put together and serve for a speedy supper. Serve with a Greek style salad for a complete meal. This also freezes well.

      This is so very good! I added a wee bit more garlic (we adore it!) and when I needed more liquid I added some white wine. After it was done I tasted it and felt it needed salt (I must be on a sodium kick)so I added it. Tasted again and still not enough for ME, so I added a generous squirt of ketchup,(I'm sorry, I just HAD to) and then it was sodium perfection for me! Serve this over rice pilaf instead of white rice and was in heaven. Thanks for the quick, easy, tasty dinner recipe. It will be a repeat!

      Pretty good stuff. I halved the recipe to use up some lamb but accidentally didn't halve the water, so the flavor was a bit watery (my fault). I used a lot more of the spices and added about 3/4 tsp salt (didn't measure). Also threw in a pinch of crushed red pepper. Served with rice that was cooked with garam masala. Thanks :)

      This was quite tasty. I also felt it needed quite a bit of salt. I added a beef bouliion cube and then tasted and still added a bit more salt. The next time I made it I added a pinch of crushed chiles. Mmmmmmm
