I made this tonight because the family is tired of rice and we had some bulgur wheat left over from another salad we made.
I decided to saute the onions in a tiny bit of butter for about 2 minutes before adding the broth and salt. I only had beef bullion cubes so I used that instead of vegetable.
Mine needed to be cooked a tad longer after the 10 minute resting time. When I took off the lid there was some liquid at the bottom still. I might have had the heat on too low.
Anyway, the end result was incredibly delicious! We had it with garlic rosemary pork chops done on the grill and steamed broccoli. The flavors together were just perfect. We will definitely hold onto this recipe to make again!

This was a nice change from the usual rice side dish recipes I've used in the past. The bulgur cooked beautifully and had a great nutty taste. We served this with chicken. I will put this recipe in my permanent collection--thanks for posting!

Easy wonderful side dish, that doesn't use butter! I loved it. I used veggie stock and a sweet onion. Thanks for posting.
