Directions

  1. Cut eggplants into half-inch slices; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and let stand for 20 minutes; blot up the liquid with a paper towel.
  2. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; brown the onion and stew meat in the hot oil. Stir in the walnuts and cook another 2 minutes; remove from heat.
  4. Arrange half of the eggplant slices in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish; spoon the beef mixture over the layer of eggplant. Top the beef mixture with the remaining eggplant slices, potatoes, and tomatoes; season with salt and pepper.
  5. Bake uncovered in preheated oven until the eggplant is soft; about 1 hour.

My Lebanese mother made this but used pine nuts instead of walnuts and used potatoes only when it was made as a stew in a pot (not baked). Also, peel the eggplant before slicing.

Delicious! I used 1 can crushed tomatoes, 1 can stewed. I also used halal veal chunks (ribs, roast, etc) and baby eggplant (sliced). So good! The only suggestion is it needs more flavor, so I threw in a few whole cloves of garlic. This made all the difference.

This was very good and different. Even my husband liked it. I did add some garlic and extra spices. Next time , I will add a extra can of tomatoes and I'll cover it w/foil. It took forever to cook uncovered and the top was a little dry. I will make it again, with those suggestions
