2 lg (about 1/4 lb ea) onions, peeled 4 cup Water 1 tsp Salt 1/2 lb Ground beef 3 tbsp Raw rice, rinsed, cooked until very soft, drained, & mashed 1 tsp Salt 1/4 tsp Pepper 1/4 tsp Ground cuminseed 10 medium Pitted prunes, cut length-wise into halves 2 tbsp Corn oil
1. Make a 1/2-inch deep incision into side of each onion. Bring water & salt to a boil over moderate heat & drop in onions. Cook for 2 mins, turning them w/slotted spoon during that time. Remove onions & peel off each layer until you reach center. Set aside onion layers & centers.2. Put beef into a bowl w/rice, salt, pepper, & cuminseed and mix well. Take 1 heaping ts beef mixture & half of 1 prune. Stuff 1 cooked onion layer & roll it up. Do this w/all stuffing & onion layers.3. Oil a skillet & lay stuffed onions & centers in it, cover, and cook over very low heat for 2 hours. The onions will become quite dark but not, of course, burned. This is top-of-the-stove cooking.Another method is to put stuffed onions into a baking dish, cover tightly, & bake in preheated, 250f. oven for 2 hrs. Serve warm. Serves 6 w/other dishes.NOTE: It is also possible to accelerate cooking time. Add 1/2 c water to skillet & cook, covered, over moderate heat for 1 hour. All liquid will evaporate & onions will be browned.
Always the symbol of hospitality, the beautiful pineapple was once a rare fruit. So rare in fact, it was called "the fruit of kings."
