Lamb in ceramic pot baked in wood-fired oven
3-4 kg lamb, cut into large pieces
1 kg, potatoes peeled and quartered.
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper.
2 tsp dried oregano (Greek rigani is best)*
8 fresh bay leaves
1/2 cup oil
Place lamb and potatoes into two baking trays. Mix together salt, pepper and oregano in a small bowl, sprinkle over lamb and potatoes and toss well, rubbing mixture into the meat. Add bay leaves and insert garlic by making small holes on the meat.Pour in water and oil. Cover with foil and bake in the oven at 150°-160° for two hours.
If you’re lucky enough to have a wood-fired oven like we do in Avali Taverna in Agios Prokopios, bake it for 3-4 hours.
