Introduction

Wheat bulgur stew with tomatoes and lamb. Use ground or other cut of lamb. Use more meat for a heartier meal, less for just the flavor. Wheat bulgur stew with tomatoes and lamb. Use ground or other cut of lamb. Use more meat for a heartier meal, less for just the flavor.
Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    1 lb ground lamb (ground beef works, but the flavor is different)
    1 onion, large chopped
    2 T vegetable oil
    1 clove garlic, minced (add another clove or two if you really like garlic)
    1 cup coarse wheat bulgur (I like coarse, but medium or fine will still work)
    28 oz diced / stewed / crushed tomatoes (1 large can) (If using fresh tomatoes, use 6-7 cups skinned and chopped)
    28 oz water (use empty tomato can) (If using fresh tomatoes, add water only if needed)
    2/3 tsp salt
    ~ ~ ground pepper to taste

Directions

These are instructions for making the dish fast and easy in one pot. You can cook the meat separately and drain, etc. if you want to reduce some fat. But you will lose some flavorÖ
I like the meat to be a little chunky, so I donít break it up too much. Add more or less salt/garlic/meat/tomatoes to customize to your liking.

Directions
1. Add oil to heated large saucepan / dutch oven. (Youíll need a lid for the saucepan later).
2. Add meat, salt and pepper. Break up and brown until itís about half way done.
3. Add chopped onion on top of meat without stirring for a couple of minutes while the meat continues to cook and brown, then stir mixture until onions are translucent.
4. Add minced garlic and cook for about a minute.
5. Add tomatoes and water. Bring to a simmer, then reduce temperature and cover.
6. Stir occasionally, keeping heat to a slow simmer or less. Add more water if needed. Stir more frequently as it thickens, reducing temperature if needed. (The bulgur will tend to settle to the bottom and can burn if left too long.)
7. Cook about an hour until bulgur is soft. Itís OK to cook slowly even longer.
8. Adjust seasonings as necessary
