  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped fine
  • 1 3/4 pound ground fresh lamb
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth/stock
  • 3/4 cup long grain white rice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried mint
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground allspice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 cup pine nuts
  • 3/4 cup currants
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 11 by 7 by 1 1/2 inch pan
  • Single pie crust or frozen puffed pastry

Lamb Pie Recipe Directions:

  1. Heat oil in large skillet, sauté onion until softened.
  2. Add the lamb and cook until brown.
  3. Add stock, rice, herbs and spices.  Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and blend in egg, currants and pine nuts.  Allow the filling to cool.
  5. Spoon filling into pan. Top with pie crust or puffed pastry, crimping the edges to fit the pan.
  6. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 45 minutes until pastry puffs and is golden.

If the puff pastry looks like too much work, use a pie crust on top only.
