Quick & Delicious Beef (or Lamb)
Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet, then add 1 diced large yellow onion and cook over medium heat until soft and translucent (about 7 minutes.)
Add 3 minced cloves of garlic and 1 cup pine nuts. Continue cooking 2-3 minutes.
Turn the heat to high and add 1 lb ground beef (or lamb). Cook until the meat is cooked through. Remove from heat and add 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh mint leaves, 1/2 cup dried currants (or cranberries), and 2-3 tsp Baharat spice blend. Stir to combine.
To serve: This meal is perfect by itself, with a side of whole grain (rice or barley). Or use it as a filling for pita bread, in flatbread rollups.
Consider topping with Yoghurt Sauce. Simple combine 1 cup Greek yoghurt, 1 crushed clove garlic, 1 tsp cumin powder, 1 tsp lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste. You can make this topping up to 24 hours ahead and keep it refrigerated in a sealed container. In fact, it gets better with some time for the flavors to meld.
Make spicy seasoned hamburgers by thoroughly mixing 2-4 tsp Berbere spice blend into 1 lb hamburger. Shape into hamburgers and grill as usual.
