Amazing recipe if you love Middle Eastern cooking like me. This dish is Iraqi (in my case, Iraqi-Israeli). It wouldn't surprise me if there was a Persian variant on this dish, because it combines stuffing vegetables with spiced ground meat, and simmering it deliciously in a tasty sauce. It can be served over any type of rice, and has a lot of juice/gravy that is just delicious. It is quite easy (though there are a few steps, none are difficult). This dish is kosher, but cannot be mixed with dairy products of course. It is a powerful and tasty dish, and I suggest that everyone try it. Warning - due to the appearance, I'm not sure how much little children (who are not Middle Eastern) would like it; though if they managed to try it, they would fall in LOVE. For the perfect compliment to this already amazingly rich dish, having hummus, tahina, and hot sauce (schug), and/or amba (an Iraqi pickled mango) - any middle eastern spread/dip. My mouth is watering just thinking about it all.
