Arni Tis Katsarolas Me Patates (potted Lamb)


  • 3 pounds leg of lamb, boned
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cup hot water (more as needed)
  • 3 pounds tiny potatoes
  • butter for frying
  • salt & pepper to taste


Wash lamb, wipe dry, and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Put 4 tb. butter in pot, add lamb; brown on all sides. Add lemon juice and allow this to boil. Add 1 cup water, and simmer (add more water as needed) 45 min. to 1 hr. or until meat is tender and 1 cup liquid remains. Remove from heat. Cool meat and slice it. Meanwhile clean potatoes--small round ones, or cut rounds with a melon baller from large ones. Put potatoes into frying pan and brown in butter on all sides, then add to pot containing the sauce from the meat. Add salt & pepper and 1/2 cup water; simmer until all liquid is absorbed and only the butter remains. Before serving, carefully place meat on potatoes to heat. Serve hot.
