Why I Love This Recipe

say: Boo-tee Arhn-yoo

I use Pinot Grigio in this recipe because I am not familiar enough with the wines of Greece, except for Retsina, which I love, but I don't cook with it.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 recipe Crêpes Salées or Savory Crêpes without Buckwheat

Lamb filling:
1 lb Lamb leg meat. Trimmed of fat, and cut into 1 inch cubes
4 TB Ghee
4 scallions, sliced, white and light green parts
2 TB fresh dill weed, chopped
2 cups Pinot Grigio
2 cups water
1 tsp Coriander
Salt and pepper
7 oz Arugala or 1 bunch of spinach, roughly chopped

Egg-Lemon Sauce:
2 egg yolks
Juice of 2 lemons
Juice from the stewed lamb

Zest of 1 lemon
2 TB plain Yogurt


For Crêpes:

Make Crêpes and store in refrigerator wrapped in plastic wrap until needed

For Ghee:

Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat.

Allow the water to evaporate,

Skim any scum from the surface.

Once the milk solids begin to brown and a nutty aroma (Smells kind of like lightly toasted hazelnuts to me)

Remove from heat and carefully pour the liquid into another container leaving the browned solids in the bottom of the saucepan. Stor covered with plastic till needed (Either in the refrigerator or on the counter... The parts that will go rancid at room temp were left in the bottom of the pan)

For Filling:

Add Ghee to a sauté pan over medium heat.

Add Lamb, Scallions and Dill, sauté until lamb is evenly browned.

Deglaze the pan with white wine.

Add Water and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered until liquid is reduced by half and meat is tender

While lamb stews; blanch the Arugala in salted boiling water for 1 minute

Add Arugala to the stew and cook for another 15 minutes or so

Season with Coriander and Salt and Pepper to taste

Drain and reserve the cooking liquid and set the lamb aside.

For Egg Lemon sauce –

In a stainless steel bowl whisk egg yolks and lemon juice together until pale and slightly thickened.

Slowly pour the hot liquid from the lamb into the yolks while whisking constantly.

Heat over simmering water, whisking continuously until sauce thickens

Reserve 3/4 cup, combine with Lemon zest and yogurt; set aside.

Assemble Crêpes:

Preheat oven to 350

Combine Egg Lemon sauce (Without the zest) with the stewed lamb.

Fill each Crêpe with about ¼ cup of the mixture; rolling each and placing in a buttered baking dish, seam side down.

Bake crepes for 15 20 minutes

Serve with Zested yogurt sauce poured over the top

Garnish with thin slices of lemon and sprigs of dill weed

I feel like Pavloves' dog, the drool is hitting the floor. I don't suppose you would consider being a "Take Home Chef" and making this for us. My Hero graduated from University of San Diago (who even made the big dance this year - what fun!) You might want to check out Michigan we've got some fun stuff here too. What if we came there would that work?
