Expert Tips

Skim the fat from stews or soups with a spoon, or place a slice of bread on the top of the mixture for a few minutes to absorb the fat.

Lamb is a frequently served meat in Mediterranean countries. You can use a small lamb roast in place of the beef if you'd like.

Feta cheese can be purchased in a variety of flavors, including herb-and-garlic and sun-dried tomato.
