Arnaki Se Fillo (Lamb In Fillo) Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

1 karen mintzias
6 boneless lamb leg steaks *
1 freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp butter or oil
2 medium onions, sliced
1 garlic clove
12 fillo sheets
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 salt
3 medium tomatoes, peeled
1 tsp rigani or oregano
125 g feta cheese, cut in 6 slices

Recipe Preparation

*Note: Lamb steaks should be about 2 cm (3/4 inch) thick.

Serves: 6 Oven temperature: 200 C (400 F) Cooking time: 25-30 minutes

Trim steaks of most of the fat and shape neatly - trimmings can be
used in a ground lamb dish. Season with pepper.

Heat butter or oil in a frying pan and brown steaks quickly on each
side - do not cook through. Lift out onto a dish and leave until
cool. Add onions to pan and fry gently until transparent, add garlic
and remove from heat.

Brush a sheet of fillo pastry with melted butter and place another
sheet on top, brushing again with butter. Fold in half to make almost
a square of fillo. Put aside and cover wtih a dry tea towel, then
one dampened with warm water. Repeat with remaining fillo to give 6
prepared squares. Take one square and brush top with butter - leave
remaining pastry covered. Place a lamb steak in the centre and season
lightly with salt. Top with onion-garlic mixture and cover with 2
slices of tomato. Sprinkle with a little rigani, salt and pepper and
place a slice of feta cheese on top. Bring up ends of fillo pastry
and double-fold over top. Fold in ends as you would a package then
tuck ends underneath. This is known as a the chemist's (druggist's)
fold. Place on a buttered baking tray. Repeat with remaining

Brush tops and sides of packages lightly with melted butter and bake
in a preheated hot oven for 15 minutes. Serve immediately if
possible, though they will survive in the oven with heat turned off
for about 10 minutes. Garnish with parsley sprigs and serve with
boiled green beans or zucchini dressed with olive and lemon juice.

Note: Medallions of lamb cut from a trimmed loin can be used instead
of the steaks. You will require 12, and place 2 in each package.

Food Tips of the Week

A few tips on healthy eating

In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
Some low carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Know what is in your food Be sceptical of sales blurb that claims 'low carb' - check the actual nutritional information on the reverse of the can or package. Many are only a little lower and in some cases still greater than a competitors standard brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are just the same.

* Make reduced carb breadcrumbs for breaded foods. Although you may be able to buy reduced carb bread crumbs, you may also make them by simply using reduced carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is toast the reduced carbohydrate bread in a gas or electric oven on a cookie sheet. Once it is quite hard and crispy, process it in your food mill. Store in an airtight container.

The brassicas, Super foods that aid Dieting
(examples: Kohlrabi, Cabbage, Mustard greens and Rutabaga)
Altthough not always popular with children, these have large amounts of vitamins (folate and vitamin c), minerals (selenium and potassium, amongst others), fibre, chlorophyll, antioxidents, indole-3-carbinol and isothiocyanates..

Amongst numerous other great health properties, a few of these nutrients are believed by doctors to help reduce the cancer risk.
