Meat n’ Wheat

Bread has been a passion, the home baked variations are many. The succulent taste of meat combined with bread is a flavor perhaps learned from the humble hamburger. I have thought of the best recipe to combine the meat with bread, Beef Wellington,  Empanadas  and the likes, even considering baking bread with ground beef in the dough. But for me the real deal was not bread but wheat, cooked to absorbed the juices of the particular meat chosen and at the top of my scale is lamb. So this is the  recipe, adaptable to other flavors.

In a suitable pan for cooking the meal brown the meat, here , lamb loin chops. Salt and cracked  pepper of course.

Set the meat aside keeping the  the juices rendered during the browning process in the pan.

Prep ingredients….

The magic ingredient here is Bulgar.

Saute up the root vegetables then add the tomatoes, here onion ,shallots and garlic are used. As to your liking herbs and spices, I used a smattering of cinnamon and just a few coriander seeds for small burst of flavors.

Add the Bulgar to absorb the juices now in the pan, and cook for several minutes. I added sesame seeds, a frequently used staple in cooking and baking . Not toasted in this recipe.

Return the meat to the pan atop the Bulgar.

Add liquid, stock is preferred, roughly twice as much by measure as the amount of wheat. If stock is not hot, bring pan to a boil first.

Cover and simmer or place  into a hot oven if you like, about 20 minutes, remove from heat and let rest covered a few minutes.

The finished result is tender meat surrounded by a most favorable wheat mixture.

MMMM…. the flavor of the lamb is incomparable when combined with the Bulgar. A close recipe is Kibbeh, also a favorite which is very close to a Meat n’ Wheat ultimate combination. https://pmetro.wordpress.com/2011/05/15/stuffed-meat-loaf-kibby-bil-sanieh    WOW recipe link , 6 years ago !

Lamb and bulgar wheat

Some lamb breast , ribs from the supercenter . Goes good with bulgar wheat, that I order on line, as the supercenter does not stock bags of bulgar wheat , the closest you can get it a small box of couscous etc.

Brown the meat. The ribs were cut to four pieces. 

Salt and pepper and seasonings of your choice…. Yes a bit fatty… Trim if you please…

    

A cup of bulgar wheat….

Sautée the veggies and add the bulgar wheat to brown slightly and absorb some of the favours.  Coloured peppers and leeks are the main components.  
Nestle the lamb in a pan with the veggies  and bulgar as a base ….. Add vegetable stock..

   

Cook as you would bulgar , cover simmer etc. serve. The bulgar has the ability to absorb the flavourings and is an alternative to rice , potato, pasta , that is nourishing and filling.

Bulgar Wheat with Sautéed Vegetables in Tomato Sauce .

20120820-210623.jpg

I used garden tomatoes that were not perfectly ripened and /or formed for this recipe. Dice garden tomatoes into chunks into a blender, cutting away the the imperfect areas (reserve in freezer for stock or discard). Blend and strain into a sauce pan to yield at least 3 cups. Heat to boil and simmer, skimming foam if necessary.

20120820-204349.jpg
Dice vegetables in a mini processor, in this case, onion,garlic,carrot and broccoli stalks. Sauté, in a skillet ,the diced vegetables in olive oil and season with salt and pepper and or/herbs and spices. This step give more flavour rather than just adding the vegetables plain to the bulgar. Remove from the skillet and set aside.

20120820-204602.jpg

Add one cup of bulgar wheat to the skillet with butter and over medium high heat slightly toast the bulgar.

20120820-204810.jpg
Put the bulgar into a saucepan, with a tight fitting lid .
