Makes approximately 6 servings

You Will Need

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 pound lean ground beef

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Directions

    Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the beef, press it down into the pan then cook, without disturbing it until browned on one side, about 8 minutes. Break the beef up then stir in the cumin, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, coriander, allspice, and a generous pinch of salt. Cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

    That’s our dinner tonight, thank you! 🙂 My mother-in-law makes a similar dish — hummus, spiced lamb or beef, and toasted almonds or pine nuts for the topping. I think feta cheese will add an interesting flavor.

    I never would have thought of this recipe but I am glad someone did. How simple and not terribly unhealthy.
