Nicholas Stavroulakis attributes this recipe to the towns of Arta and Previza in Greece. Similar meat loaf recipes are found in Italian and Persian Jewish kitchens, however. Here as elsewhere, the word hamin suggests a Sabbath dish, baked in the hamin or oven and served at room temperature. This meat loaf is especially succulent served hot, however, with a sweet-and-sour tomato sauce.
