recipe image Mastelo from Sifnos


  • 2 kilos lamb or kid, cut in large portions
  • 500 ml. red dry wine
  • 2 large bunches of dill, minced
  • 50 ml. Altis Chania Crete Extra Virgin Oil
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Salt


      1. We marinate the meat in the wine for 8 hours.
      2. We preheat the oven at 220ο C for 30’.
      3. We remove the meat pieces from the marinade, add salt and pepper, and place them on the casserole rack.
      4. We add an adequate quantity of wine so as to cover the bottom of the casserole but not to touch the meat; we pour the olive oil over the lamb and sprinkle it with the dill.
      5. We cover the casserole with baking paper and close the lid.
      6. We bake the lamb at 220ο C for 30’, then lower the heat to 120ο C and continue to cook for approximately 4 hours.
      - If possible, we spread vine sprouts along the casserole bottom, to add extra flavour to the lamb
