Cooking Tips For The Greek Moussaka Recipe
➡️ Authentic Greek moussaka is made with roasted eggplant and ground lamb. It is one of the tastiest foods I have ever enjoyed! Many moussaka recipes with eggplant, zucchini, or potatoes are available today, but the one presented on this page is the closest to the original and is still made throughout Greece today.
➡️ As I mentioned, authentic Greek moussaka is made with lamb, but you can replace it with ground pork or beef without any worries. Moussaka will be just as delicious and appreciated by everyone!
➡️ I recommend roasting the eggplant on the charcoal grill so that the moussaka has a slightly smoky taste. If you don’t have this option, baking eggplant in the oven or roasting on the stove is a good choice.
➡️ Removing roasted eggplant skin is not mandatory (most Greeks don’t do this), but be aware that it is very bitter and the moussaka will have such a taste. Therefore, I prefer to remove the skin and make a more refined version of moussaka.
➡️ Finally, I recommend adding a little extra cream over the moussaka on the plate for a creamier texture. Also, some freshly ground black pepper gives a more spicy taste to the moussaka.
➡️ Authentic Greek moussaka is best served with a Greek dry white wine or a local alcoholic beverage called retsina. Good appetite!
