Sofrito (Greek Lamb Recipe)

Rated as 2.6 out of 5 Stars

"This dish is quite different from any I've tried before and we like it very much. If you like vinegar and lamb, this is thick and delicious and worth trying. Beef may also be used and is just as good. We like to serve this on toasted garlic bread or in pita pockets."

Too much vinegar,I used only 3/4 a cup and it was still too much!,It wasn't what I was going for and I feel it ruined my good lamb meat!

Way too much vinegar, I used the whole cup and had to dilute it with beef stock. I would use perhaps half a cup of the vinegar, and some stock or water.
