1 cup bulgur
2 cups onions
1 lb ground beef
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup chopped parsley

Recipe Directions for Lebanese Meatloaf

  1. Place bulgur in a fine strainer and rinse thoroughly with cool water.

  2. In a food processor, finely chop the onions. Add beef, 1/2 cup water, pepper, cumin, cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon salt. Whirl until mixture is a smooth paste.

  3. Add bulgur and 1/4 cup parsley; whirl just to mix.

  4. Pat meat mixture evenly into a shallow 1- to 1 1/2-quart casserole. Cut through meat mixture to make diamonds 2 to 3 inches wide. Place a peppercorn in the center of each diamond.
