Beef Edam with Cheese Recipe:
● 2 kilograms of Edam cheese, in balls.
● 500 grams of fresh ground lamb.
● 3 tablespoons of butter, divided.
● 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil.
● 1 cup finely chopped onion.
● 1 ripe tomato, peeled, seeded, and finely chopped.
● 1/4 cup of canned and diced tomatoes.
● 1/4 teaspoon of ground red pepper.
● 1/2 teaspoon of salt (to taste).
● Freshly ground black pepper (to taste).
● 1/4 cup of fine breadcrumbs (processed in a blender or finely chopped).
● 6 small olives stuffed with sweet peppers, drained and finely chopped.
● 1 tablespoon of finely chopped Aleppo pepper.
● 2 tablespoons of seedless raisins.
● 1 well-beaten egg.
Oven-baked Lamb Beef Edam with Cheese Recipe:
● Peel the wax off the Edam cheese and cut a 1-inch thick slice from the top of each ball.
● Using a spoon, hollow out the center of the cheese, leaving a shell that's about half an inch thick.
● Hollow out the slice from the top in a similar way to create a lid.
● Place the lids and cheese shells in a skillet or a large pot, and pour enough cold water over them to cover by at least an inch. Let them soak for one hour.
● Grate enough of the extracted cheese to make two cups and set it aside.
● Brown the lamb briefly.
● Remove the cheese shells and lids from the water, then turn them upside down on paper towels to drain.
● Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
● Using a pastry brush, evenly distribute a tablespoon of the softened butter on the bottom and sides of two circular baking dishes, each at least 3 inches deep and large enough to hold the cheese shells compactly.
● (If the dish is too large or shallow, the cheese will collapse and spread when baked.) In a heavy skillet, measuring 10 inches, melt the remaining two tablespoons of butter with the vegetable oil over medium heat.
● Add the onion and stir frequently, cooking for about 5 minutes until the onion is tender and translucent but not brown.
● Watch carefully for any signs of burning and adjust the heat accordingly.
● Add the tomatoes, red pepper, salt, and a little freshly ground black pepper, continue stirring, and cook lightly until most of the liquid in the skillet evaporates and the mixture is thick enough to hold its shape in a spoon, about 10 to 15 minutes.
● Using a slotted spoon, transfer the contents of the skillet to a deep bowl.
● Add the lamb, grated cheese, breadcrumbs, olives, pickled cucumber, Aleppo pepper, and raisins. Gently but thoroughly fold together.
● Taste the seasoning and adjust, then add the beaten egg.
● Fill the meat mixture into each cheese shell, then place the shell in the prepared dishes and cover with the cheese lids.
● Bake uncovered in the middle rack of the oven for about 20 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned, and the meat is tender.
