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
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

1Heat 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.

This sounds lovely. Going to give this a go. thanks for sharing this recipe.
really great and easy… thanx
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.
