Here’s a recipe for a tasty Lebanese soup made with meat-stuffed pasta and a yogurt broth. Growing up, we used to consider this comfort food and we still do!


Steak – 2 ounces, diced
Dough – 5 ounces
Yogurt, Plain – 1 32 oz. container
Onion – 2 tablespoons, finely diced
Garlic – 1 large clove, minced
Mint, fresh & dried – 2 or 3 leaves (Optional)


1. When mincing garlic, add in fresh mint leaves and mince together. Set aside
2. In a bowl, add onion, steak, a couple dashes of salt, pepper, and dried mint. Mix together
3. Add some flour to a flat surface and roll dough into long stick formation
4. Cut into pieces (1/2 inch pieces)
5. Using flour to keep from sticking, take piece of dough and use thumbs to flatten it out into a circle. Add a small mixture to center and close it to make it into a moon shape, and then close it completely to make it look like a tortellini *See pictures for guide.
6. In a bowl, mix 1/3 cup of rice and a cracked egg and set aside
7. Pour whole container of yogurt into a pot. Using the empty container, fill it up with water and add that water to the pot. Add tablespoon of salt. Use whisk to mix it together on medium low. Whisk for 10 minutes (clockwise).
*Be sure to keep mixing so it does not clump or separate
8. Add rice and egg mixture and continue to whisk for an additional 10 minutes
9. After ten minutes, add dough pieces on by one while continuing to stir.
10. Stir for another five minutes and then add minced garlic and mint. Taste to see if rice is cooked, turn stove off and enjoy!

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.
