Lamb and Pine Nut Stuffed Onions Recipe

Servings: 4

This recipe has a bit of a Middle Eastern flavor to it and is savory enough to be eaten with a salad as a meal.

  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 lb ground lamb

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.

  5. Place the hollowed out onions, inverted, in a glass baking dish and add enough water to dish to come about 1/3 of the way up the onions.

  7. Heat butter and oil in a pan, add the chopped onion, and sauté until starting to brown.
  8. Increase the heat and add the ground lamb.
  9. Cook until the lamb starts to brown and the juices evaporate.

  11. Cook for about 5 minutes.
  12. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  13. Combine the meat mixture with the rice, pine nuts, and chopped herbs and taste the mixture for proper seasoning.
  14. Stuff the onions with the meat mixture and place them back in the baking dish.
