**I know it's been a while. I truly appreciate all your patience and understanding during this devastating time in my family's life. It can't be understated.
I'm a fan of quick and easy meals. When my brothers say they want something to eat, this is definitely one of those dishes that come to mind as an option. It's so easy to whip up and the boys absolutely love them. You can make these subs in under an hour. They look fantastic, but they taste even better. They're so flavorful and have so many wonderful differing textures that really make these subs a joy to eat. You'll love them because they're easy and they'll love them because they're tasty and filling. It's a win-win for everyone.
Last week, I shared my mom's Lebanese chicken noodle soup recipe with you. Well, this week I'm bringing you another one of mom's recipes. I'm going to show you how to make this dish that typically accompanies the chicken noodle soup in our household. Tidbeha is a Lebanese rice dish that consists of cooked basmati rice cooked in onions with minced beef, garnished with slivered toasted almonds (optional). It's a wonderful variety to the normal rice or rice pilaf we make. It's a comfort dish, so flavorful and easier to make than you think.
Now that I got that legendary saying out of the way. Let's talk beef. I'm pretty much a carnivore according to my mother. I can't really disagree. I love beef. You're probably well aware that there is good beef and bad beef. That's why there is Grade A Prime vs Choice, for example. There is a grading system for a reason. To assist you with knowing more about beef and what is what and where it comes from, I've attached the image below. This chart was what we use in school and it really is a good resource. Along with the images of beef and where it comes from, it shows a key to the recommended cooking methods for each cut.
