Arni Fricase Me Kremmithakia Ke Maroulia (lamb)

Strips of lamb, cooked with vegetables till golden brown. Make this simple Greek dish for dinner tonight.


  • 5 shoulder or back of lamb
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 10 scallions
  • water as needed
  • coarse salt
  • 3 heads of lettuce
  • 2 dill, chopped (or to taste
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 lemons, juice only


1.Cut lamb into serving-size strips. Place in pot with the butter. Clean scallions; chop the white part into small pieces. and the greens into larger ones (about. 1 1/2" long); add to meat.

2. Add 1/2 cup water and a little coarse salt; cook over med. heat for about. 1 hr. Clean lettuce and cut into 2-inch pieces. As soon as meat has absorbed the water it will begin to brown in the butter but do not let the scallions brown. Add dill, lettuce, salt & pepper. Cover pot and simmer over low heat for about. 15 min.

3. If it is needed, add a little water toward the end of the cooking time (not in the beginning, because then the lettuce will exude water). Beat egg yolks with 2 TB. of water, add the juice from the lemons, and beat it in well. Add a little of the liquid from the pot, beating constantly. Pour this sauce back into the pot and shake the pot gently to mix the sauce with the food. Serve immediately.
