Sebastian's Authentic Greek Cuisine - Kleftiko

"Tender Lamb and oregano....the food that Greece is famous for!"


  • Leg of lamb cut into approx 1 inch thick slices
  • 2-3 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1-2 medium onions finely chopped
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic crushed
  • 1.5 teaspoons of oregano
  • Salt & pepper to taste

How to Make

  • Heat 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large saucepan (enough oil to amply cover the bottom of the pan).
  • Add the onion and garlic and gently fry until transparent.
  • Remove the onion and garlic from the pan add the pieces of lamb, one by one, frying until each side is coloured - you may need to add more olive oil at this stage so that the meat doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • Once the meat is browned off, return the onion and garlic to the pan add the oregano.
  • Season with salt and pepper
  • Add just enough water to cover the top of the lamb, cover the pan with a lid and bring to the boil.
  • Turn down the heat so that the casserole is just simmering and leave to cook for 1.5 - 2 hours - or until the sauce has reduced and the lamb is tender.
  • Taste and season if required and set aside to cool a little.
  • I always try to remove any excess bones and fat from the casserole before serving, this leaves just the meat, a few bones and the delicious sauce.
