Baked lamb and yogurtBaked lamb and yogurt, Tavė Kosi, is an Albanian recipe for lamb.
1-1/2 lbs lamb 4 tablespoons butter (1/2 stick) 2 tablespoons rice Salt, pepper
For Yogurt sauce:
1 tablespoon flour 4 tablespoons butter (1/2 stick) 2 lbs. yogurt 5 eggs Salt, pepper
Cut meat in 4 serving pieces, sprinkle each piece with salt and pepper, and bake in a moderately-heated oven with half the butter, sprinkling the meat with its gravy now and then. When meat is half-baked, add rice; remove the baking pan from the oven and leave it aside while you prepare the yogurt sauce:
Saute flour in butter until mixed throughly. Mix yogurt with salt, pepper and eggs until a uniform mixture is obtained, and finally stir in the flour. Put the sauce mixture in the baking pan; stir it with the meat pieces and bake at 375 degrees F for about 45 minutes. Serve hot.
