Sini Kufta

(Makes 8 servings)

lb. ground lean beef
lb. finely ground lean beef (you can ask the butcher to do this for you)
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 cup bulgar
cup water
1 tsp. salt
tsp. pepper
Olive oil

1. Finely chop the onion.
2. Place lb. of ground beef into a frying pan and turn the heat to medium-high. Add the onion.
3. Fry the meat and onion until the meat is crumbled and brown, and the onions have a golden brown color (about 8 10 minutes).
4. In a food processor, add cup water to the bulgar to allow to soften. Add the other 1b. of ground beef, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes (or paste). Mix to combine all ingredients.
5. Flatten and pat of this meat mixture on the bottom of an 8 x 8 baking dish.
6. The cooked meat goes right on top of this meat layer.
7. Top it off with another layer of the meat and bulgar mixture (this is why it is called a Layered casserole).
8. Use a paring knife and cut it into little diamond shapes.
9. Brush the top lightly with olive oil before it goes into the oven (this keeps the top of the Sini Kufta moist and tender as it bakes in the oven).
10. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. You did it! Yum!
