Title: Avgolemeno
Yield: 1 Servings
Categories: Greek

Ingredients:

1/2 c Uncooked rice or orzo
7 c Stock (up to 8)
1 Lemon, juice of
2 tb Water
2 Eggs (up to 3)
Salt and pepper to taste


Prepare a stock by boiling slowly lean lamb, meat bones, or chicken with
enough water to cover. Strain stock when meat is done. 1/2 hour before
serving, boil stock and add rice or orzo. When orzo is done, reduce heat
to simmer. In a bowl, beat eggs with 2 Tbsp. water and the lemon juice.
Spoon broth into egg mixture STIRRING CONSTANTLY to prevent curdling. After
adding about 5 Tbsp. broth to eggs, add eggs to the broth on the stove
STIRRING CONSTANTLY. Remove from heat. It should be slightly thick. Serve
immediately. I like this pretty "lemony", so I sometimes add more lemon.
