Savory Turkish Pilaf

I love this recipe for company--I've been making it for decades, but can't remember where I originally got it. It cooks on the stove but I like to serve it in a baked bean crock I own. Sauteing the raw rice in the same butter you sauteed the lamb in BEFORE you cook the rice enhances the flavor somehow. A real treat if you like lamb!
