“This is an easy meal to prepare and it tastes great. You can substitute the lamb with beef if you want. Serve with plain yogurt if desired.” - by fire00starter
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in the lamb, and cook until browned and no longer pink, breaking up into crumbles, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and their juice, celery, orzo, salt, cayenne pepper, and garlic. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the orzo is tender and has absorbed the liquid from the tomatoes, about 12 minutes.

"an easy version of a time consuming classic. It's very basic, too. My own version of this has a leg of lamb and uses oregano, lemon, and feta cheese as well as the ingredients you listed. I was taught..." See more using the "handful" measuring method, so I'm not sure about quantities. Still, this takes about 1/10 the time and is very tasty :). Thank you for sharing! I'll be making this again for sure. Definitely try adding feta if you're looking for suggestions. It does wonders for this recipe."
"This was really excellent--simple, quick, and filling. I made exactly as described, but without celery. It turned out perfectly. One note: It may be difficult to find "stewed" tomatoes at your grocery..." See more store (it was at mine), so a can of chopped or peeled tomatoes should be a fine substitution."
