Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Layer up half the potato, tomato and aubergine in a baking dish, scattering with garlic, oregano and olives, and drizzling with oil and seasoning as you go.
  2. Scatter over the feta, then repeat the layers until all the ingredients are used up. Finish with potatoes and a little oil.
  3. Bake for 50 mins or until the veg are tender (cover with foil if they’re getting too brown). Top with the lamb steaks, rubbing with a little more oil and seasoning. Bake for 15-20 mins more until the lamb is cooked. Allow to rest and cool a bit before scattering with oregano and serving with crusty bread.

Was delicious! I used small potatoes and cut them really fine so about 1 hr in oven was enough to make veg soft. Also I used lamb chops as I thought the fat would give it more flavour. It did and they come out tender! Would cook this again deffo.

Absolutely delicious. I added sliced courgette and put foil over the dish for the first 30 mins to make sure the veggies and potatoes were cooked. All the vegetables, feta and oil make a lovely sauce at the bottom. Used boneless lamb steaks and after 15 mins they were perfectly cooked, juicy and slightly pink in the middle. Served with peas drizzled with basil oil and it was a very tasty plate of food.

Cooked the vegetables for 45 minutes, added the lamb and then cooked for a further 25 minutes. (Used 200g feta.) The flavours were lovely and the lamb was beautifully tender and still pink, but the potato slices (no more than 2mm thick) were still underdone, and nobody liked the aubergine. Might try again, but without the aubergine, and with precooked potato slices.

Delicious. Halved the recipe and there was more than enough for two adults (including a hungry pregnant one). Wouldn't change anything and it was nice to have aubergine for a change. Served it with the blackberry red cabbage (in a venison recipe on here) and was beautiful.

Delicious! I substituted courgette for aubergine, didn't tell the kids it had feta cheese in it! I don't like dry meals so was a bit unsure if I would like it but as everyone said by the time it cooks it has created a really lovey sauce....will definitely make again, so easy.

Loved this and so easy to cook. Only thing I changed was to add more feta. Will cook again.

I've made this dish twice, both times it has been delicious and my guest have eaten every last morsel. A very tasty & low-maintenance meal, ideal to cook for a small group.

Really love this recipe but my lamb always takes much longer to cook than the recipe says - even for pink lamb which my kids just won't tolerate. I reckon I cook it for at least 30 mins - what am I doing wrong?

Absolutely beautiful dish! Clean plates and we were both in silence as we ate, it was so tasty! Definitely worth trying if you like the 'Greek' flavours.

This dish was simply bursting with flavour. I put the potatoes, aubergines and garlic into the oven first for about half an hour and then added the tomatoes, olives and feta for about 20 mins before adding the lamb. I used chunky lamb chops, rubbed them with olive oil, salt, pepper and some lamb seasoning and then placed them over the nearly-cooked vegetables. Didn't have fresh oregano so used dried. It was beautiful. The flavours came together perfectly, the lamb was juicy and my guests couldn't get enough!

We really enjoyed this recipe, so easy, especially if you use a mandolin to slice everything! After cooking the veg they looked a bit dry but cooking the lamb on top really sorted that out. I thought the olives really made it so personally wouldn't leave them out.

I couldn't believe how much juice was there at the bottom of the baking tray! Absolutely delicious and really easy to make...

Will definitely make this again, but maybe without olives, as I didn't think they were needed

Delicous, and so easy to make! I chucked in a packet of antipasti (feta, sundried tomatoes, olives) which worked well. Can't go wrong with a good traybake:)
