Spinach with Lamb

(Etli Ispanak)

Spinach with Lamb=
500 gr fresh baby spinach, washed, drained
150 gr lamb, cut in cubes
1 + 1/4 cup warm water
1 medium sized onion, chopped
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp butter
1-2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 pinch crushed pepper

1 tbsp flour, all purpose
1 or 2 tbsp lemon juice (I used 2 tbsp lemon juice)

Cook the lamb cubes with their own juice. Then add 1 cup hot water and cook over low heat until the lamb pieces are tender.

Meanwhile saute the onion with butter and olive oil for about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and saute until the smell of garlic comes out. Then add the cooked lamb, spinach, 1/4 cup water, crushed pepper, salt and pepper. Cover and cook for about 5-6 minutes at medium heat.

Put the flour and lemon juice in a small bowl. Take 4-5 spoon of juice of the dish and pour into the bowl. Whisk them well. Slowly pour this mixture over the spinach, stir. Cover and simmer for about 5 minutes.

2 servings.

Just wanted to say I love your recipes!!! Found you through a friend and tried this recipe along with the Saffron Pilaf. IT WAS AN AUTOMATIC HIT!! My husband loved it, took the leftovers the next day for lunch, and his friends went head-over-heals for it too. Thanks so much to taking the time to post these. Hope one day I may have the privilege to travel to Turkey and try these dishes from a real expert! InshaAllah :)
