DIRECTIONS

  • Place whole unpeeled onions (bigger the better!) in a pot, cover with water. Bring water to boil, then turn down to a simmer. Cover and simmer the onions for 20 minutes. Remove, drain and cool the onions so you can handle them.
  • Mix together the lamb or beef, add cinnamon, allspice, salt, pepper and rice. Mix well, then add tomatoes, gently mix again, being careful not squeeze juice out of the tomatoes.
  • Cut the top and bottom from the cooked, UNPEELED onions. Slice into the onions by making a cup down the side of the onion that goes to the center of the onion. Remove the outer skin and then, VERY CAREFULLY, remove outer leaves.
  • Place a big of filling into each onion leaf and roll, like a sausage.
  • Add to hot, large frying pan coated with olive oil and brown. Add some beef stock and simmer 40 minutes covered.
