I've had a Lebanese rice dish several times that was marvelous. Definite ingredients were cinnamon and pine nuts. The web has turned up a few variations with ground lamb, something I've never cooked with before (and that I'm fairly sure was not on my plate previously). Any experience with this dish? Recipe suggestions? Is the lamb overpowering or subtle? Would ground turkey be an adequate substitute?
If this helps in any way, it was served with a grilled garlicky-lemon chicken in all instances. Garlicky-lemon chicken currently marinating away in the fridge, so I'm hoping for a good accompaniment before dinner time!
Other Lebanese side dishes or desserts also welcome. Thanks!
