Hünkar Beğendi is a traditional stewed lamb (tas kebap) dish served over mashed eggplant. The Turkish name translates to "the Sultan liked it," and I can see why! The lamb is incredibly succulent and flavorful, among the best I've ever had. And the smoky eggplant purée has a subtly sweet flavor that complements the meat perfectly. I became a little obsessed with eggplant while in Turkey.
