Serves: 4 Preparation time: 20′ Cooks in: 3h Ready in: 3:20′

500 g lamb leg, in large dices
500 g pork, in large dices
200 g halloumi cheese or kefalograviera, in large dices
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 tbsp dry white wine
4-5 allspice berries
1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
1 tbsp fresh oregano leaves
1 tbsp fresh spearmint leaves
sea salt, freshly ground black pepper
baking parchment


Step 1
Preheat oven at 170°C/fan. In a mortar crush garlic with allspice, salt, black pepper and half oil with a pestle, until you get a thick paste.

Step 2
In a large bowl mix well all meat with garlic paste.

Step 3
Cut 4 very large pieces of baking parchment and fold them in half. Divide meat and cheese in the centre of all 4 pieces and sprinkle with white wine. Wrap and seal well using cooking string and transfer in a pan filled with a little water. If water evaporates, add a little extra.

Step 4
Bake parcels for 2,5-3 hours until meat is meltingly tender. Serve with oven potatoes or French fries and a nice green salad.golbasi
