~ Wash and cut the lamb in serving pieces, or ask your butcher to cut them.
~ Pour the oil in a casserole to heat up on high heat and sauté the lamb pieces on all sides.
~ Once all pieces of lamb are sautéed add salt, pepper to taste and half a cup of water.
~ Cover your casserole, lower the heat and simmer until the meat is almost cooked.
~ In the meantime clean the onions, wash onions and lettuce and cut in large pieces.
~ In order for your meat to be lighter you can place the onions in a sauce pan with some water and bring them a boil.
~ In the casserole with the meat add the onions, lettuce, dill and parsley and let it boil without disintegrating the vegetables.
~ After cooking the meat with the vegetables add some more water if needed (when boiling vegetables usually bring out some water).
~ When the meal is ready break the eggs in a bowl, add the lemon juice and beat well to mix.
~ Pour some hot juice from the casserole in the bowl whisking constantly.
~ Pour the egg mixture in the casserole and move it in circular movements in order to go everywhere.
~ Serve your Arni Frikase (Lamb Frikase) immediately and hot.
~ Good luck and bon appétit.
