Hello everyone.   It has been a while since my last post.   I will not give you a recipe for this post,  since it was a complimentary dish from a dearest person. All I can say is that it was delicious!    

Shieftalia - CYPRIOT CUISINE -

I am sure many of you never heart about the Island of Cyprus or Cypriot Cuisine. Well, Cyprus is a small island in the Mediterranean Sea. It is a member of the European Community and although it is an independent country the nationality is Greek. There are many Greek dishes included in this cuisine but there are also many which someone can find only in Cyprus cuisine.

One of the most common foods in the island is “Shieftalia”. It has the shape of a small sausage and it is cooked mainly over charcoal. Below you can find the detailed recipe.

2kg Minced pork (2lb 4 oz)
175g Onion; Finely chopped (6 oz)
85g - 100g Flat leaf parsley; chopped (3 oz app.)
1ts Ground cinnamon
1ts Ground black pepper
1ts Salt
300g Lamb fat – stomach linings; (10 ½ oz)

Preparation Instructions
1. Place the minced pork in a large bowl, then add the other ingredients and mix well to combine.
2. Lay the lamb fat out on a chopping board and cut into pieces 10x10cm (4x4 inch).
3. Take a small handful of the pork mixture and squeeze in the palm of your hand to form a small sausage. Place the sausage on a piece of the lamb fat and roll it up, turning the ends in to enclose totally.
4. Repeat with the remaining pork mixture and lamb fat.
5. Cook for 15 minutes over charcoal or on a barbeque grill turning occasionally. Alternatively roll the sausages in a little olive oil and cook on a barbeque grill or bake in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes at 200øC/400øF/gas mark 6.
6. Serve with a generous squeeze of lemon juice, a salad of your choice, and fried or roasted potatoes.
7. It can be served in special bread called “pitta” together with tomato, parsley, cucumber, onion and plain yogurt or pickle.

It is delicious!!!
