Karnıyarık (6 Portion)
When it comes to Turkish cuisine, homemade meals are kept in very high regard. These meals represent an atmosphere of warmth and coziness reminiscent of our childhood times spent with our families. Thus, they have a very special place for the Turkish people. Karniyarik, is one of these dishes and it never fails to satisfy its recipient in terms of deliciousness. The name of the dish karniyarik means “riven belly” in Turkish, and it is a direct reference to the base ingredient of eggplant being cut into two. After the eggplant is smoked for tasty goodness, it is cut in half and stuffed with a mixture of sauteed grass-fed ground cattle meat, chopped onions, garlic, tomatoes, and exotic herbs. The result is an extraordinarily delicious hearty meal that is fit for any family gathering.
