Karniyarik (stuffed eggplant with ground beef) is one of the most well known dishes in Turkish cuisine. It's Oven Cooked.

Ingredients - Karniyarik :
  • 1 eggplant
  • olive oil for frying
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 7 oz ground beef or lamb
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 tomato sliced into thin rings
Preparation - Karniyarik :
  • Peel the skin of the eggplant in stripes. Cut in half lengthwise and scoop out the flesh without breaking the skin. The eggplant halves should look like two boats.
  • Heat a little olive oil in a skillet and fry the eggplants on all sides until lightly browned. Drain and place in a roasting pan, hollow sides up. Preheat a 375 F oven. Melt the butter or margarine in a separate pan and cook the meat, onion, parsley, and tomato paste together. When cooked, fill the eggplant shells with the meat mixture and place a few tomato rings on each one. Pour 1-1/4 cups water into the roasting pan.
  • Cook in the oven for 30 minutes, or until the eggplants are cooked. Serve with rice.
