#85 Kafta Bil Sanieh

As we expand our culinary adventure farther to a different continent, the Middle East, amazing flavors are discovered. WOW! Even the pickiest eater I know on Earth said "Oh wow" many times. And the recipe for Kafta Bil Sanieh is far from complicated. Drizzle with a little bit of olive oil, mix all the ingredients, bake it,  and enjoy it. Simple cooking that's great tasting. This dish from Lebanon does not disappoint!



2/3  pounds ground beef
5 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, finely chopped
6 red potatoes, peeled and sliced
2 medium tomatoes, sliced
1/2 teaspoon all spice
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 can of tomato sauce

Preheat oven at 400 F degrees. In a baking dish or pan, place the slices of potatoes. Drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 20 minutes. 
Remove from oven.In a large bowl, combine beef, parsley, garlic, onion, all spice, salt, pepper. Mix well, it's better to mix it with your hands. After mixing, pat the meat mixture into a separate and clean baking dish or pan. 
Bake it for 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Add the baked potatoes on top of the baked meat, and then add the sliced tomatoes on top of the potatoes. Pour tomato sauce evenly on top. Bake for another 25 minutes.
Serve warm with rice, couscous or pita bread.

It's delicious.
