Healthycooking's picture
Ingredients
  Regular-strength beef broth 2 1⁄4 Cup (36 tbs)
  Cracked wheat 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Bulgur)
  Spinach 3⁄4 Pound (1 Bunch)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Lean ground lamb 1 Pound
  Onion 1 Large, chopped
  Ground cinnamon 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Water 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Raisins 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Pepper To Taste
Directions

In a small pan, bring broth to a boil over high heat.
Add cracked wheat, then cover pan.
When broth resumes a full rolling boil, reduce heat and simmer until grains are al dente and liquid is absorbed (15 to 20 minutes).
Meanwhile, remove and discard tough spinach stems; wash leaves, pat dry, and cut into 1-inch-wide strips.
Set aside.
Sprinkle salt into a wide frying pan over medium heat.
Crumble lamb into pan; cook, stirring, until meat begins to brown.
Add onion, cinnamon, water, and raisins; cover and simmer for 5 minutes.
Stir spinach into meat mixture; cover and cook just until spinach is wilted (1 to 2 minutes).
Remove from heat and season to taste with pepper.
Mound hot cracked wheat on a platter and top with meat mixture.
