“Manestra” is basically the Greek word for orzo. Usually when you say you are eating manestra, though, it means orzo cooked with some sort of meat on the stovetop. It can be made with chicken (and I definitely recommend it be a dark meat, bone-in), lamb, or beef. “Youvetsi,” on the other hand, is typically a cut of lamb with orzo that is made in the oven instead of a stovetop.

Last night we had manestra with beef or “kreas.” We usually have this with chicken, so this is a nice change. The ingredients are really simple and things I always have around, so this often tends to be an end-of-the-grocery-cycle meal
