  • In a bowl, marinate the lamb pieces with MAGGI Secrets Meat Marinade, oil and water. Cover and place in fridge for at least 3 hours or maximum overnight.

  • Reduce heat, cover and cook over low heat, around 25-30 minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed and the frikeh is cooked.
  • Remove the meat from the bones then serve the frikeh on an oval dish, topped with the pieces of lamb meat.
