DIRECTIONS

  • Place bulgur in a fine strainer and rinse thoroughly with cool water.
  • In a food processor, finely chop the onions. Add beef, 1/2 cup water, pepper, cumin, cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon salt. Whirl until mixture is a smooth paste.
  • Add bulgur and 1/4 cup parsley; whirl just to mix.
  • Pat meat mixture evenly into a shallow 1- to 1 1/2-quart casserole. Cut through meat mixture to make diamonds 2 to 3 inches wide. Place a peppercorn in the center of each diamond.
  • Bake, uncovered, in a 425° oven until meat is no longer pink in center (cut to test), about 25 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining parsley and add salt to taste.
  • To serve, cut diamonds apart and accompany with yogurt.
  • Yield: Makes 4 servings.
