  1. EASY SWAPS Use lamb cutlets or leg steaks instead of chops if you prefer. Depending on the thickness, they might cook a little faster than chops. If you don’t have any harissa, use 1 tsp smoked paprika instead.

  2. Bulgur wheat is cracked wheat that’s been parboiled, so it’s faster to cook than straight cracked wheat. Find it in larger supermarkets, health food stores and Mediterranean food stores. It comes in fine, medium and coarse grains. Medium is best here, but any size will work – it just may take a little more/less time to cook.
