In Greece, roast meat (lamb, beef, chicken) and potatoes is ubiquitous throughout the year. Upon my most recent visit to Athens, my aunt let me in on a secret that takes this traditional dish to another level. Instead of the usual lemon juice, she said, add the juice of one orange. I tried this upon my return home and it is absolutely delicious! It may be awhile before I go back to lemons -- and this dish is as delicious as it is simple.
If you prefer, use the juice of two lemons instead of the orange for another traditional preparation.
Very tasty and simple recipe. Washed down with a good bottle of greek red, it all goes together very nicely. - 21 Mar 2011
Partner loved this and I liked it so this is a recipe we will repeat. I did it with mixed root veg, chunked red onion, unpeeled garlic cloves and lamb chops. As I used lamb chops I cooked the vegetables alone first and added the chops in latter. Served it with fresh bread. I love the sauce the forms in the bottom of the pan. - 26 Jul 2010
Really nice, I didn't have any french mustard so used mayonnaise instead. - 02 Mar 2016
