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.

I've never had bulgur before. It's an acquired taste, perhaps? Making this was easy. I used chicken stock since I had some leftover in the fridge. I want to add something though. Maybe celery to the leftovers.

Really easy, fast, and good. I put chopped fresh herbs in it when it was done. It will become a frequent side dish for us! Much better than rice.

My whole family really liked this. I used chicken broth because that's all I had. Zaar's calorie count is waaaayyy off though -- unless I have some weird kind of bulgar wheat. My bulgar box says that 1/4 cup of the bulgar has 140 calories.

Super easy and wonderfully tasty. I used chicken stock because it is what I had and served #122134 overtop. Really superb dinner.

Very easy to make, but a great side dish. Good change from rice. I may try adding other ingredients: grated carrots, peas, spices or herbs... Great recipe to play around with -- thank you!
