  • Lamb-stuffed phyllo (Rgag)

    My family has been on the tradition of making (and eating) Rgag. This ancient Syrian rustic cuisine descent meal is made by stacking about 10 thin layers of yeast-less dough(phyllo) (U.K. filo), filled in between by chopped lamb and onion, where the layers are smeared with ghee (cooking fat) before sprinkling the stuffing and going to the next layer.The regional naming of the meal means in English "delicates" which is the essence of it; to go as delicate as possible with the dough layers (phyllo).

    Besides is whipped salty yogurt (Ayran), cucumber (marinated and fresh), and a clay pot that cools water naturally; the ambient temperature was 35 C while the water was about 17 C.
    Why is this thus? What is the reason for this thusness?
    I forgot who said that.

    That looks delicious! I wish I lived close by and have a taste. For what ever reason lamb is not that popular here, I only get to eat it at Easter and if I go to a reastraunt that servers it. Also, when they do it is only the chop. I will have to try to recreat it some time for my family, did you cook it in your WFO?

      Hi hodgey1,

      Glad you like it. Unfortunately, my WFO is still under construction. I'm not that lazy builder, it just took me time to find the right materials and to optimize my options.

      Happy to know you will be trying it out. When you will be cooking it, cook it on a moderate heat for 30-40 minutes.
