6 Boneless lamb leg steaks *
Freshly ground black pepper
2 Tablespoon(s) Butter or oil
2 Onions, sliced
1 Garlic clove
12 Fillo sheets
1/2 Cup(s) Butter, melted
3 Tomatoes, peeled
1 Teaspoon(s) Rigani or oregano
125 Gram(s) Feta cheese, cut in 6 slices

Note: Lamb steaks should be about 2 cm (3/4 inch) thick. Serves: 6
Oven temperature: 200 C (400 F) Cooking time: 25-30 minutes Trim
steaks of most of the fat and shape neatly - trimmings can be used in
a ground lamb dish. Season with pepper. Heat butter or oil in a
frying pan and brown steaks quickly on each side - do not cook
through. Lift out onto a dish and leave until cool. Add onions to pan
and fry gently until transparent, add garlic and remove from heat.
Brush a sheet of fillo pastry with melted butter and place another
sheet on top, brushing again with butter. Fold in half to make almost
a square of fillo. Put aside and cover wtih a dry tea towel, then one
dampened with warm water. Repeat with remaining fillo to give 6
prepared squares. Take one square and brush top with butter - leave
remaining pastry covered. Place a lamb steak in the centre and season
lightly with salt. Top with onion-garlic mixture and cover with 2
slices of tomato. Sprinkle with a little rigani, salt and pepper and
place a slice of feta cheese on top. Bring up ends of fillo pastry and
double-fold over top. Fold in ends as you would a package then tuck
ends underneath. This is known as a the chemist's (druggist's) fold.
Place on a buttered baking tray. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
Brush tops and sides of packages lightly with melted butter and bake
in a preheated hot oven for 15 minutes. Serve immediately if possible,
though they will survive in the oven with heat turned off for about 10
minutes. Garnish with parsley sprigs and serve with boiled green beans
or zucchini dressed with olive and lemon juice. Note: Medallions of
lamb cut from a trimmed loin can be used instead of the steaks. You
will require 12, and place 2 in each package. From: "The Complete
