Cracked Wheat Pilaf

A nice change from rice and very good for you. Look for bulgur in health food stores and better supermarkets.


1 cup bulgur (cracked wheat)
1/2 cup chopped onions
6 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 cups beef or chicken stock, boiling
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Saute dry bulgur in 4 tablespoons of the butter or margarine, stirring, until thoroughly coated. In the remaining butter, saute the onion separately until soft.

Combine the onion with the bulgur and remaining ingredients in a casserole. Cover and bake 30 minutes in a 350 degree F oven. Stir gently with a fork. Cover and bake again for an additional 15 minutes.

At the end of the baking time, all the liquid should be absorbed and the bulgur moist but fluffy.
