Stuffed Chyntuck


Stuffed Chyntuck - Chyntuck is an onion-like vegetable found on Kashyyyk that is stuffed with meat and then baked. 




2 large sweet onions
1 pound ground beef
1/2 pound bulk pork sausage
1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1/2 cuip breadcrumbs
1 cup beef broth
1/2 c white rice
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg




Peel onions and cut 1/2 in. off tops and bottoms.
Place onions in a large saucepan. Cover with boiling water. Cook until tender, about 20 minutes; drain.




Cool slightly. I dunked them in ice water for a minute so they wouldn't be too hot to handle -now. Carefully remove inside layers of onion, separating into eight individual shells (refrigerate remaining onion for another use). Drain on paper towels.




In a skillet, cook beef and sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain.
Add spinach; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in the remaining ingredients.




Spoon into the onion shells.
Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until heated through and lightly browned.




I garnished them a bit with shredded cheese. Yum!
