I really didn't expect much when I made this recipe but was I ever wrong! It's deceptively and delightfully simple and somehow incredibly tender and flavorful. I had no idea Turkish and Midwestern cooking had so much in common. This could be a simple homemade dinner in central Illinois. I served this over brown rice and the only changes I made were to use less oil and to simmer it closer to an hour. Fabulous.
