The greeks call this dish "Lamb Kleftiko" which means "Stolen Lamb" and refers to a time when people would steal a sheep from a sheep herder and would cook it outdoors. The would dig a hole and bury the lamb and then set a fire over it. That way if the sheepherder came by looking for his stolen lamb it was nowhere in sight to be found lol! Anyway the process took all day and apparently it can be served with a spoon.
MMMMmmmm! I almost made Lamb Kleftiko last night but went with chops instead.
