Pub-Style Bulgur Pilaf

(Meyhane Pilavı)

Pub-Style Bulgur Pilaf
~200g (7oz) lamb cubes
3⁄4 cup Turkish bulgur, large-grain, washed, drained
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp butter
1 small onion, sliced
1 cubanelle pepper, discard the seeds, chopped
1 long red pepper, discard the seeds, chopped
1 garlic clove, chopped
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp red pepper paste
1 cup beef broth, hot
Dry mint
Red pepper flakes

Cook the lamb cubes in a medium-sized pot at medium heat until there is no water left. Add the butter, olive oil, onion, and peppers. Continue to sauté for 2-3 more minutes. Then add the garlic, tomato paste and red pepper paste. While stirring, sauté for about one minute. Add the bulgur and hot beef broth and stir.

Turn the heat down to low. Cover and cook until all the water evaporates. Let the Pilaf stand for about 5 minutes. Garnish with dry mint and red pepper flakes. Serve with ayran on the side.

Makes 2 servings.
