Bulgur Zuchini Pilaf is a simple Lebanese dish made with bulgur, beef, onion and zucchini braised with tomato sauce. Bulgur Zucchini Pilaf is known as Burghul a Koosa (bulgur with zucchini) or Burghul a Banadoora (bulgur with tomato). Some people leave out the zucchini, but I like the different texture that zucchini adds to this dish.
There are two different kinds of bulgur: fine and coarse. When buying your bulgur, look closely at the packaging and you will find a number. The lower the number, the more fine the bulgur grain. Number 1 being the most fine (least coarse) kind of bulgur that is usually used in Tabouli Salad and Kibbeh. Number 2, 3 and 4 are more coarse. You can use any coarse kind of bulgur for this recipe, but I personally prefer 3 or 4. The more coarse the better!
