    Default Stuffed camel

    Description: A Bedouin recipe...makes a BBQ that will be the talk of your town.
    Serving Size: 80 - 100
    Difficulty: Easy

    Ingredients:
    1. * 1 whole camel, medium size
    2. * 1 whole lamb, large size
    3. * 20 whole chicken, medium size
    4. * 60 eggs
    5. * 12 kg rice
    6. * 2 kg pine nuts
    7. * 2 kg almonds
    8. * 1 kg pistachio nut
    9. * 110 gallons water
    10. * 5 lbs black pepper
    11. * salt
    Preparation:
    1. Skin, trim and clean camel (once you get over the hump), lamb and chicken.

    2. I use fresh garlic cloves for the camel and lamb...the traditional recipe does not call for it...cloves from about 30 head of garlic
    Instructions:
    1. Boil the camel, lamb and chickens until tender. You can reserve the liquid for making soups at a later time.
    2. Cook rice until fluffy.
    3. Fry nuts until brown and mix with rice.
    4. Hard boil eggs and peel.
    5. Stuff cooked chickens with hard boiled eggs and rice.
    6. Stuff the cooked lamb with stuffed chickens.
    7. Add more rice.
    8. Stuff the camel with the stuffed lamb and add rest of rice.
    9. Broil over large charcoal pit until brown.
    10. Spread any remaining rice on large tray and place camel on top of rice.
    11. Decorate with boiled eggs and nuts.

    Sounds like a Bedouin version of Turducken. Lambelichen? Camlamben? What about portion size? Will this feed the whole town or just the tribe?

    Becky, it is a real recipe. I even checked Snoopes.com and they confirm it is an actual recipe.

    Lol, I checked there too! When I first read it, I was simply going to move it to the OUTBACK Bar humor area of the forum, but then saw it was a real recipe. Laughed my butt off. heheh....

    So, Ron. Is this the menu for your next orchid forum barbeque? Just how big of a pot do you need to boil a camel? I'll bring the boiled eggs! You think gator or nutria might go well as an appetizer? Fried of course.
