How to make it

  • Sauté the lamb in hot butter/oil until well browned.
  • Add the onion and cook until limp.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes, beef cube, sugar, salt and pepper, and oregano.
  • Stir well, cover the pot, lower heat and cook gently for about an hour.
  • Empty the pot into an earthenware casserole dish and add the manestra, along with boiling water (2 cups water for each cup manestra).
  • Stir well and place in a preheated 350° oven.
  • After 25 minutes, spread grated cheese on top.
  • Return to oven and bake another 20 minutes or so until the cheese is melted and crusty and the liquid has been absorbed by the manestra.
  • Serve with green salad.
  • Even better baked the day before and re-warmed!
