  • 1

    Add the onions to a pan of boiling water, so that they are completely covered. Simmer over a medium heat for 25 minutes, until tender.

  • 2

    Remove from the pan and once cool enough to handle, make a slit down one side of the onion and pull apart the layers, taking care to leave the onions whole.

  • 3

    Set a large saucepan with the olive oil over a medium heat. Add the beef mince and brown all over for about 5-6 minutes, breaking up with a spoon.

  • 4

    Stir in the orzo, spices, and chicken broth. Cook for 7-8 minutes, until the water has evaporated, and the mixture is dry. Remove from the heat and stir through the tomato paste and herbs.

  • 5

    Preheat the oven to 170°c.

    Stuff the onion skins with the beef and orzo mixture, then transfer to a large baking dish.
