Braised Lamb-Stuffed Eggplants

This husband and wife team partially peels and then brines the eggplants overnight. They’re par-cooked in a cast-iron pan, then stuffed with the rich, fragrant mixture of braised lamb, garlic confit, urfa chiles and lebanese 7-spice.

Renee lets the natural flavor of the lamb shine through with a simple rosemary and herb roast – or uses a similar leftover roast lamb preparation – and accents it with the rich heat of a harissa aioli on top of a fresh-baked pita. For balance, pickled shallots and bitter greens provide a nice clean finish.

Chef Rena is always serving up something with class and style. We loved her heartfelt benefit dinner for the Aussie Bushfires, and now she’s got a couple of dishes coming up that are worthy of attention. This one’s a bit on the lighter side, aiming at a lunch crowd with fresh preparation, broad appeal and loads of flavor. Good onya Rena!
