Buglama means “Steamed”. Main ingredients are – lamb (or fish), onions, peppers and tomatoes. Buglama steamed in its own juice.

2 onions
3 tomatoes

Place the pieces of lamb into the pot. If using ribs, select that have a fair amount of fat, and don’t add any butter to the pot.


If using tenderloin, add some butter to your pot. Season your lamb with salt and pepper. On the top of the lamb place a layer of sliced onions, then place layer of sliced bell peppers and on the top the layer of tomatoes and herbs.
