From Food for Hunters
This is our version of Lahma Bil Basal, or Beef In Rich Onion Sauce. It’s a favorite in Egyptian households and now we know why! Since this is a wild game blog, we of course used venison for this dish. The end result was a house full of awesome smells, tender, melt-in-your-mouth chunks of venison in an onion sauce that was out of this world. This dish was also very easy. You basically throw all the ingredients in a pot and let it cook for 2-3 hours. Remember that infomercial from years back? “You set it, and forget it!”
Ok, I lied. Maybe it’s not THAT easy. But it’s something pretty darn close, almost as easy as cooking an entire chicken in a Ronco Rotisserie and BBQ Oven. Not that we’ve tried.
Anyway, you gotta have this dish with couscous, pita bread and our Tarragon Tomato Salad. It’s a meal fit for Cleopatra.
