    cooking in cairo...'s Note:

    These are really good and have a nice oniony flavor. At first I was not sure I liked the oniony taste, but have grown accustomed to it now. If you don't like onion, this dish is NOT for you, if you do, try it, super simple and you will love it!

      Really good...basically Egyptian chicken fried steak. I'm married to an Egyptian guy, and he loved it. Only change I made was to put the meat in beaten eggs before bread crumbs. Key is the onion bit....and pounding steaks thin.
