Prep the currants; cook the eggs
- In a small bowl, cover the currants with hot tap water and soak until plumped, 5 to 10 minutes, then drain.
While the currants soak and the eggs cook, prepare the lamb.
Prep and cook the lamb
- Cut a small corner from the ground lamb packages and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
Add the currants and cook, stirring occasionally, until the lamb is cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and cover to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.
While the lamb cooks, prepare the eggplant.
Prep and cook the eggplant
- Remove the stem from the eggplant; cut the eggplant into ½-inch cubes.
While the eggplant cooks, prepare the garnishes and the lemon-tahini dressing.
Prep the garnishes; make the dressing
- Juice half the lemon; cut half into wedges for garnish. [Juice 1 lemon; cut 1 lemon into wedges.]

- Cut the eggs in half lengthwise; season with salt and pepper.
- Fill a pot with water and a bowl with ice water.
- Peel the eggs.
