Lamb, Swede and Feta bake
« on: 21 January 2015, 07:10:01 PM »
I adapted this recipe from one I found in Good Food Magazine.  My adaptations were because I found I didn't have quite the right ingredients in the store cupboard, so I used what I had.  The picture is from the magazine but looks much like my dish except the sauce in my dish came out slightly drier and richer.  It might look fiddly, but it's actually very very easy and if there are only 2 of you then you've made another two meals for later all in one go!


Serves 6 very generous portions
Total carbs 95.9g.  Per Portion 16g.

150g raw onion peeled and finely chopped 11.9g carb
3 cloves of garlic minced 1.5g carb
2 tsps cinnamon 5g carb
2 tsp dried oregano1.7g carb
1 tsp chilli flakes
800g raw minced lamb (economy lamb and mutton mix)
2 tbs Tomato puree 5g carb
500g carton of Tomato Passata 22.5g carb
600g or thereabouts swede 30g carb
25g butter 0.2g carb
25g flour 19.5g carb
300g whole milk 13.5g carb
150g Feta cheese 2.3g carb

Heat the oven to gas 5, 375F, 190C.  Peel the swede and slice thinly into large slices.  I cut mine in half before slicing.  Heat some oil in a large frying pan or wok and fry the onion until soft, add the garlic and fry for another minute then add the cinnamon and chilli flakes and fry for another moment or two.  Add the minced lamb, break up any lumps with a spatula or wooden spoon and fry until golden, turning regularly.  Tip in the passata, dried oregano and the tomato puree, season well and give it all a good stir, bubble for a few minutes to combine.  Meantime oil a large oven proof dish and lay a layer of swede overlapping slightly in the bottom.  Put in half the lamb mix and spread out.  Top with another layer of swede pieces, followed by the remainder of the lamb and top with the remaining layer of swede.  I worried there wouldn't be enough, but it just made it!

In a small pan melt the butter, add the flour and mix until smooth, remove from the heat, add a small amount of milk, stirring until smooth and continue adding the milk a little at a time until you have a smooth sauce, place back on the heat and stir until thickened then remove from the heat.  Crumble the feta and add half to the sauce along with the whisked egg, stirring well.  Pour over the lamb and swede in the dish.  Top with the rest of the crumbled feta, cover with foil and bake in the oven for approx 30 mins.  Remove the foil, return to the oven until golden brown on top (approx 30 mins - but poke with a small sharp knife before finally removing from the oven to ensure the swede is soft and baked well).  Leave to stand for a few minutes before serving.

We enjoyed this dish with green beans and broccoli.  After serving 2 portions I left it to cool and then put it in the fridge overnight before dividing the remaining dish into 4, wrapping the portions in cling film and then foil before putting into the freezer for 2 more meals for 2.  I shall defrost and then re-heat in the oven in a dish covered with foil.

I fancy this !  However, I'll make it with beef mince as Pete hates lamb.  Shame cos it won't taste the same. 

I wonder, I bet I could do 2 - one in the oval Pyrex pudding dish and t'other in the same capacity but oblong Pyrex pud dish, using the same quantities of everything but half beef and half lamb.

FWIW J had this out of the freezer and warmed up whilst I was not well.  He said it was just as good.

I am making it again today as I have a sad little swede that needs using.

I'm going to do a red cabbage a la Delia. One cabbage makes a shedload and it freezes well so NP.

Were hoping to have beef this week (I mean for Sunday dinner so a joint) but frankly I wasn't actually willing to part with money for any of the joints on offer in Tesco on Thursday - so we'll have a piece of pork we have in the freezer.  It's either half a big loin or ditto boned shoulder - dunno which we finished and which we haven't without getting it out - so I may freeze all of the cabbage LOL

I made red cabbage last night, most of it is in the freezer. I find red cabbage goes best with pork anyway. I use a modified version of Delia's because it was to strongly flavoured for my family. I really should have worked the carbs out better I guessed a little too much. So was in the high 3s after bolus was out.

Well there's very little brown sugar and there can't be that much in one Bramley, both in comparison to the amount of cabbage.

We're into nutmeg and cinnamon so NP here!

I looked up Delia and it is different than the one I followed a couple Xmas's ago, so either it wasn't hers or she changed it / has more than one recipe out there.

Mine's the one from 'D S's Complete Cookery Course' book, which is an omnibus edition published by Book Club Associates who I had any number of different books from at the time.

Helluva job getting rid of them (BCA I mean) once I no longer wished to invest with them!  They would send their book of the month and the invoice and unless you paid to return the thing pronto (virtually the same day you received it) you were stuck with it and had to pay.

Try the hairy bikers mulled cider red cabbage... to die for!  http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/cinnamonandapplepork_93116  I am doing this tomorrow to go with a gammon I am boiling.

I agree about BCA I have tons of books from them dating in the 70s.  I finally managed to opt out!

OOps Plumb was that the lamb thing or red cabbage?  Sorry to be confused! We have 4 portions of the lamb in the freezer.  Going to have a busy time on Sat.  We shall get out 2 portions.
