21/2-lbs of veal large chunks
3-table spoons of olive oil
1-large onion ( peeled and cut in half)
1-teaspoon cinnamon
2-cinnamon sticks
1-teaspoon nutmeg
1-teaspoon all spice

2-bay leafs
8 -cups of water

2-large tomatoes, cut into circles
1-large eggplant, cut into circle shapes and fried
½ pound of cauliflower, cut into bite size and fried
3 cups of rice ( your choice, I used Basmati)
1-2 tablespoon of Salt ( add as you desire or less)
3- tablespoons of ghee
1-cup of pine nuts ( fried in Oil until golden brown)
1 cup of blanched almonds ( fired in oil until golden brown)
½ cup of oil for brown pine nuts and almonds


Heat olive oil in a deep pot over medium-high heat and sauté veal meat and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side. Add water, onion, cinnamon powder, and sticks, nutmeg, all spice, black pepper, red pepper flack and bay leafs to the pot and cook again for 2 hours on medium heat or until meat is very tender. Leave in stock once done ( taste stock for your liking of seasoning).

In a large pot, melt the ghee and turn heat to low.

Remove meat from stock and shred with a fork, then evenly place as your 1st layer ( careful HOT)

Place tomato as 2nd layer into the pot then add eggplant as 3rd layer after that add the cauliflower.

Place the rice over the layers and spread evenly.

Strain the stock and carefully pour 6 CUPS over the rice

Cover the pot and place it over high heat until the water start to boil then reduce the heat to medium and keep until the Maklouba is cooked and no more water in pot. (NEVER stir rice)

Prepare flat serving plate and quickly flip the pot over the plate then hit the pot with hand from different places and gently lift it up.

Serve and enjoy Makloubi with your favorite side dish.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
