Greek Moussaka Authentic Recipe Instructions

Slice the eggplant into rounds, about 1cm (1/4in) thick. Sprinkle lightly with salt and leave for an hour for them to sweat.

Pat down with a clean dish towel to remove the moisture. This will remove any bitterness.

If you are using small eggplant you can omit this step.

While the eggplant is sitting, make your mince sauce.

Greek Moussaka Meat Sauce Recipe

Add a slurp of olive oil to the bottom of a large heavy-based pot over medium heat.

Tip in the onions and garlic and when they begin to soften add the beef and cook until the meat has browned.

Now add the tomatoes, tomato paste, and spices. If possible, leave the sauce to simmer, uncovered, for twenty to thirty minutes.

Lightly brush or spray the eggplant slices with oil, and then grill or pan fry until browned on each side. Set aside.

While meat is simmering make the bechamel sauce.
