    The first time I made this with lamb it was good. The second time I made this, I didn't have lamb so I used spicy Italian sausage and it turned out even better! I modified the spicyness and made it more spicy. I added mushrooms and dried basil and oregano halfway in. When I served it, I topped it with crumbled feta, diced red onion and avocado slides. IT WAS DIVINE!

    I love bulgar, and lamb is my favourite red meat. I found this pretty disappointing. Swap out the feta for parmesan and it would be right at home on spaghetti. Best served with apologies.

    Holy crap, this is tasty. Ignore people who said to alter the recipe in this, that, and the other way! I tried to do this by adding an extra 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes and nearly burned my face off (and I like hot food)! It is delicious lamby goodness just the way it is.

    I substituted pearled barley in this recipe, and it came out great. You need to add a 1/2 cup more water, and cook it for a bit longer, but it thickens up the stew very nicely. Also, don't be afraid to throw some garlic in there, too.

    Tasty, but "mealy" from the texture of the bulgur being so similar to the ground lamb. Might have been better with lamb chunks?

    This is a great hearty winter meal. The diced tomatoes, beans, and spinach add texture to the stew, which has a porridge-like consistency. The feta is a must, adding a tangy-salty element that brings all the flavors together.

    Made it, but increased ground lamb to a pound. Still thought there was too much bulgur. Next time I would use less bulgur. My Jordanian husband liked it.
