Greek Recipe search: I ate at a local Greek Restaurant and after reading the menu and considering my food allergies the waitress spoke to the chef and he made me something. It was wonderful, it was coarsely ground lamb with an orange colored creamy sauce. I would guess it was paprika or some other red spice that gave it the color, or perhaps a combination of that and tomato sauce. It may have had yogurt as well. I returned to the restaurant some time later and asked for it again, unfortunately by description only, but apparently there was a different chef, who tried, but failed at making something similar it. It has been quite awhile now, so I can't give any other ideas as to the spices used in it. I am hoping it is something traditional and the orange colored sauce will be the giveaway. Any suggestions welcome. I have scanned Greek recipes on-line and even bought a Greek cookbook, but so far have not found anything that looks like it. The consistency was almost that of sloppy Joe's. Very flavorful and served with rice. May have had onions in it, but no other vegetables.
