This meal is called up side down in Arabic (Don’t ask me why). My 14 month old baby is going through a teething/independent phase and he is refusing to eat most of the meals that he ate before. My sister reminded me about this dish that we always loved growing up and she swore all kids love it (She has 3). I made it today and sure enough Aiden ate all his dinner.
One Cup of Rice
1/2 Cup of Peas
1/3 Pounds of Ground Beef
Salt and Pepper
How to Prepare:
Heat one tbsp of butter then cook the ground beef on medium heat with salt and pepper until all brown.
Add the peas to the meat and stir for few seconds.
Add the rice and 2 cups of water to the meat and peas, then add 2 tbsp of chicken stock (or one cube of chicken bullion).
Once the water starts to boil, lower the flame and cover the pot.
Let it cook until the water dries for about 20 minutes.
I am going to make this w/o the beef or chicken stock, since I am vegetarian. I will use ‘Boca” crumbles which is a vegetarian ground and veggie stock!
That seems delicious as well.
