Greek Style Pulled Lamb Fries

Greek Style Pulled Lamb Fries

After making several of the Greek style pulled lamb pitas I was looking for a bit of a change and I had just the idea. I was thinking about Greek styled pulled lamb fries something along the veins of chili fries or carne asada fries. Of course in addition to the pulled lamb topping there would be some freshly made mint tzatziki along with diced tomatoes, red onions, feta and some chopped kalamata olives. One of the reasons that I was liking this idea was that it would give me a chance to work on my french fry making skills as they need some improvement. This time my fries came out nicely done and they went well with the pulled lamb and all of the toppings. The fries were lightly golden brown and crispy and the outside and creamy on the inside and with their light salting they made this dish. I have to say that I liked the fry topped version better than the pita wrap version but then you really can't go wrong if your fries come out right.

Kevin, how long are the fries out of the oil between the first and second frying? Just long enough for the oil temp to increase by 50 degrees, or longer?

My oh my! Kevin! You are really getting carried away! Meat over fries? Reminds me of a story we just saw on tv of a huge burger 'with everything' between two grilled cheese sandwiches!! Sorry. This just is not appetizing. Anon.#1

Have you tried baking fries? They are so much healthier and a lot easier than frying!

Not to state the obvious, but between the fries and the pita it's not really a fair contest! This is so inventive.

You don't use pepper?!
And I think you right!
Because the pepper in supermarket are so bad quality, no tasty and no fragrant. Now I adopted Kampot pepper since my trip in Cambodia and I think it will be delicious with your recipes.

Hi Kevin! That's a fancy dish there!

Way to get creative. I've never had pulled lamb meat before, but it sounds good!

Delicious and very original combination of ingredients.
Lovely presentation ♥

I could eat a plate of that in a heartbeat, and then go sniffing around the kitchen looking for more....

This actually reminds me a lot of the Greque Frites that we ate in France. Basically, just a gyro on top of fries. Sometimes there was a pita in between, but other times just the meat and toppings smothering salty, golden, crispy fried potato. Delicious.

Ingenious!

Jamie said...

Oh delicious! This is like a better, more delicious, healthier version of a lamb kabob and fries and this is a fabulous meal! Really fantastic!

Kevin said...

Julie: The fries are out of the oil for just long enough to bring up the temperature of the oil.

Julie said...

Thanks Kevin, I'm looking forward to making some!
