Lamb kleftiko is a classic Greek recipe of slow cooked lamb with garlic, oregano, olive oil and lemon juice.   Kleftiko means stolen and many years ago, sheep stealing was common practice in Greece.  This Lamb kleftiko dish takes it name from when thieves ‘kleftes’ would steal meat and bury it with hot coals under the ground so that no one would smell the delicious aromas of the cooking. They would leave the lamb hidden in the hole to roast slowly for hours.
