Since 1990, Dimitris Taverna has been a trendy hangout for Manchester celebrities. Here's their recipe for one of the Mediterranean classics.


Serves: 4 People

4 lamb steaks
1 large onion, roughly chopped
4 medium tomatoes, sliced
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
4-5 bay leaves
1 tbsp fresh rosemary
1 tbsp fresh oregano
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp tomato puree
Salt and black pepper
8 medium potatoes, peeled and cut in half
Pint of lamb stock


Place steaks in a large baking tray then cover with all the other ingredients evenly. Pour over the stock to almost cover all the ingredients. Put tin foil tightly over the tray and bake in the oven at 180 degrees for one and a half to two hours until the meat is completely tender. Serve with fresh vegetables or a Greek salad (green salad with olives and feta cheese).
