Today I’d like to show you a Turkish cooking technique, which we call a pot meal. It is the best way to make a pot of food large enough to feed the whole family😍. A small amount of meat becomes more and more with the help of legumes and vegetables.
Everything simmers together with herbs and spices and becomes a healthy, incredibly fulfilling and tasty meal! Of course, if there is a pot meal on the table, then it means we have to talk about Pilav as well! 😘

Perfect beans & Pilav (Turkish rice)
The basic steps of making a Turkish pot meal:
Then add the meat and fry until it is browned. It can be ground or diced beef, lamb, chicken, or cured meat like sucuk or pastrami.
Add in the onion. Onion adds flavor and its juice helps to soften the meat and scrape up all the flavors that are stuck to the bottom of the pot.
If you are using spices like cumin, oregano, mint, or hot pepper, add now.
Almost every pot meal is served with a pilav (It can be rice or bulgur pilav) but even if there is no pilav, there’s always a piece of bread for you to dunk in!
