Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large bowl combine the boiling water and bulgur. Cover and let stand for 1 hour. Meanwhile, for dressing, in a small bowl whisk together lemon juice, oil, and salt; set aside.

  • For tabbouleh, drain bulgur; return to bowl. Stir in tomatoes, parsley, and green onions. Whisk dressing. Pour dressing over bulgur mixture; toss gently to coat.

  • Trim fat from meat. In a small bowl combine cumin, paprika, pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Sprinkle spice mixture evenly over meat; rub in with your fingers.

  • For a charcoal or gas grill, place meat on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat. Grill for 17 to 21 minutes for medium (160°F), turning once halfway through grilling.

  • Transfer meat to a cutting board. Cover with foil; let stand for 10 minutes. Thinly slice meat across the grain. To serve, spoon tabbouleh onto a serving platter. Top with meat slices.
