Category: Lamb/Sheep, Main Dish

 Ingredients List

  • Heart, Liver, And Kidneys Of
  • Spring Lamb
  • 4 tb Olive Oil
  • 1 lb Spring Onions -- finely
  • Chopped
  • 1/2 c Fresh Parsley Mixed With
  • Dill -- finely chopped
  • Salt And Pepper
  • 1/2 c Walnuts -- finely chopped


Pierce the liver with a knife, cut open the heart and fry them together in
a little hot oil for a few minutes. Pass them with the kidneys through a
coarse grinder. In Greece we would also use the lungs - but in NY it is
against the health code to sell them.

Heat 4 tablespoons olive oil in a heavy frying pan and saute the onions
until transparent. Add the meat, dill parsley, and salt and pepper. Stir
in well and saute gently for 15 minutes. Add a little water to moisten and
cook until the meat is tender. Remove from the heat and sprinkle with
chopped walnuts. Serve warm or cold.

Serves 4-6.

NOTES: A traditional Sephardic recipe.

This fufills the injunction in the Torah:

And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire and unleavened
bread; with bitter herbs they shall eat it. Eat not of raw, nor sodden at
with water, but roast with fire; its head with its legs and all of the
innards thereof. And ye shall leave none of it remaining until morning.

Exodus XII 8-11

My guests did well - except for the head.
