Sheepherder's Pilaf

By • November 27, 2009 • 0 Comments

Author Notes: My grandfather was a Basque sheepherder and this is a family staple served with roasted leg of lamb. We all fight to pour the pan drippings from the lamb over our pilaf!Meaney Cafe

Serves 6

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup white rice
  • 1 cup bulgur
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups water
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in oven safe casserole dish or pan with a tight fitting lid.
