  • 1 pound lamb shoulder, cut into chunks
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the lamb and cook until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove the lamb from the skillet and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, sauté the onion and garlic until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the oregano, rosemary, and bay leaf and cook for another minute.
  4. Return the lamb to the skillet and add the broth and tomatoes. Bring to a simmer, then cover and transfer to the oven. Bake for 1 hour.
  5. After 1 hour, remove the skillet from the oven and stir in the olives and feta. Return to the oven for another 15 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the lamb is tender.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Serve hot, garnished with additional feta and olives if desired.


  • This recipe can also be cooked in a slow cooker or instant pot instead of the oven. Simply add all ingredients to your device and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 2-3 hours.
  • If you prefer a spicier dish, feel free to add some crushed red pepper flakes to the skillet when sautéing the onion and garlic.
