The Arabic name (which I can't remember) means 'It cooks itself.' Most Middle Eastern food is time-consuming to make; this name implies that the cook is embarrassed to serve something so simple. Best served over rice.

Recipe Ingredients for Eggplant and Lamb Stew

1 1/2 pounds lamb shoulder
2 eggplants, peeled and chopped
2 large tomatoes, chopped
2 large onions, chopped
2 green bell peppers, chopped
10 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1/2 cup red wine or water
1 teaspoon allspice
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper

Recipe Directions for Eggplant and Lamb Stew

  1. In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat, and brown the lamb on all sides. Mix in the eggplants, tomatoes, onions, green bell peppers, and garlic. Cook and stir until tender and lightly browned.

  2. In a small bowl, blend the tomato paste and water. Mix into the pot with the lamb. Season lamb with allspice, salt, and pepper. Reduce heat, and simmer about 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally, until the meat shreds easily with a fork. Add a little water as necessary to keep the ingredients moist.
