Stuffed Eggplant

Ground beef stuffed eggplants are one of my summer meal favorite! I really love it. Eggplants are as nutritional facts not much a beneficial vegetable yet they are delicious and in anyway good fiber. Enjoy this delicious Stuffed Eggplant (Karni Yarik) recipe. Very traditional Turkish family cooking recipe.

Ingredients

  • Eggplants 6/8
  • Ground Beef  10 ounce (300 gr)
  • Tomatoes 2
  • Green Pepper 2
  • Parsley
  • Garlic 2/3 clove
  • Olive Oil
  • Canola Oil
  • Chili
  • Black Pepper
  • Salt

Wash the eggplants. Peal the cover like zebra and fry with canola oil in the pan. All sides for a few minutes.

Prepare the ground beef for filling. Put the ground beef in the pan, cook a bit, add a little olive oil. Then add chopped green peppers, cook a bit more.. then add chopped tomatoes, parsley, salt, chili and black peppers if you like you can use cumin too. Cook well.

Get the fried eggplants on a oven tray, cut on the top a little bit like a boat. Fill with ground beef mix you just prepared. Add the try half glass water and put in the preheated oven 400 F (220 C) cook around 15/20 minutes and while cooking check it, we don’t want them to burn.
