Paper Wrapped Lamb Recipe
If you love lamb, a recipe you should try as soon as possible is paper wrapped lamb recipe. It is cooked in a short time compared to many meat dishes without the need for any preliminary preparation or extra ingredients, and it becomes soft as Turkish delight. All you have to do is salt the meat, wrap it in greaseproof paper and place it in the oven. Since the meat does not breathe, a pressure cooker effect occurs and the meat softens easily. After the meat is soften, it is uncovered and fried for another fifteen minutes, and the meat becomes even more delicious.
One of the best aspects is that it does not require any preliminary preparation or marination process. All you have to do is to take the meat out of the fridge, salt it and place it in the oven. You don't need to think about what you're going to cook before cooking, and you don't need to plan or prepare in advance. Although it is a meat dish, you can decide and cook it instantly. If your meat is frozen, let me give you a trick. No matter how you thaw frozen meat, in order to thaw it in a short time, freeze it by spreading it thinly in a ziplock bag instead of freezing it in a large mass as you get it from the butcher. The thinner it is, the sooner it will thaw.
To make the meal more satisfying, you can make a side of rice with vermicelli as in the photos and fettush salad as a side dish. Somehow, if you can't take yourself from cooking, you can make taş kadayif for dessert.
Let me give you one last tip about the recipe. If you need to cook the food a few hours before serving, you can cook for the first hour and keep the food that way, then open the paper before serving and bake for another fifteen minutes. In this way, both the food will be warmed, it will not be fried and it will not dry out while waiting.
