  • Cooking Up Justice

    For over 65 years, the attorneys and staff at Galfand Berger, LLP have been fierce advocates for our clients and the communities we serve. That’s why, time after time, people trust their matters to our firm. And that’s why, this summer, we are gladly participating in “Cooking Up Justice,” an event that benefits Philabundance, the region’s largest hunger relief organization.

    The actual cook-off is not until July 21. However, just in time for the summer barbeque season, here is a sneak preview of the recipe submitted by our firm. So, fire up the grill and enjoy!

    Mediterranean Orzo Grill

    • 1.5 pounds ground lamb (or lamb sausage with casings removed)
    • 1/2 cup mint, chopped and divided (with extra for garnish)
    • 1/2 cup basil, chopped and divided
    • 3-4 cloves fresh garlic, minced
    • 16oz jar of marinated artichoke hearts, drained and rinsed and thread onto skewers
    • 4 roma tomatoes (fresh), chopped
    • 6 oz feta cheese, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
    • 3 tbs olive oil
    • 1 tsp lemon zest

    Mix lamb, garlic, half of your basil and half of your mint in a bowl (add ½ tsp salt and ½ tsp pepper if you are not using sausage) and form into hamburger sized patties.

    Turn grill onto medium high heat. Cook lamb patties through, flipping once to allow for caramelization on each side. While patties cook, add Artichoke skewers to grill, also allowing some minor charring for taste.

    Meanwhile, cook Orzo in well-salted water and drain when cooked. Once patties are finished cooking, break up into bite-sized pieces with a fork. Return orzo to the pot you cooked it in (should still be warm) and add broken lamb patties, artichokes, feta, chopped tomato, remaining basil and mint. Stir in olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper.

    Serve in shallow bowls, and garnish with splash of good olive oil, lemon zest and reserved mint.
