This recipe is a staple at BBQ Bob’s dinner table.   Charlie Jabour is Bob’s father-in-law and is 100% American Lebanese.  It works with beef, venison, lamb, Elk or Moose.  Check it out and be sure to come back here and let us know how much you enjoyed it!  We like to serve these over a bed of rice.

Maureen likes to break up 20-30 stalks of spaghetti into 1/2 inch pieces, brown them in olive oil in the sauce pan before adding rice.  You can also add almonds or pine nuts for the right look and taste.
