Avgolemeno

Avgolemeno

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup uncooked rice or orzo
  • 7-8 cup stock
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 2-3 eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Prepare a stock by boiling slowly lean lamb, meat bones, or chicken with enough water to cover. Strain stock when meat is done. 1/2 hour before serving, boil stock and add rice or orzo. When orzo is done, reduce heat to simmer. In a bowl, beat eggs with 2 Tbsp. water and the lemon juice. Spoon broth into egg mixture STIRRING CONSTANTLY to prevent curdling. After adding about 5 Tbsp. broth to eggs, add eggs to the broth on the stove STIRRING CONSTANTLY. Remove from heat. It should be slightly thick. Serve immediately. I like this pretty "lemony", so I sometimes add more lemon.
