How to make it

  • Use a food processor to chop and mix all the ingredients except the ground beef.
  • Then knead the mixture with the ground beef.
  • Refrigerate for an hour then allow the mixture to rest on the countertop for 25 minutes.
  • Set the oven to broil.
  • Have two oven trays ready.
  • Spread approximately 1/3 cup of the mixture in a thin layer on the pita / flat bread.
  • Place two per oven tray and put the trays on the second rack from the broiler.
  • Bake for about 4-5 minutes, making sure not to burn the edges of the pitas.
  • Place parchment paper or paper towel at the bottom of a large saucepan or Dutch oven.
  • Fold the cooked Lahmacun in half and place them in the saucepan to keep warm with the lid on top.
  • When all are baked, serve with kebabs and a side salad of tabouleh while they are still warm.
  • Note: If you do not like the uncooked version, you can always saute the ground meat before combining it with the other ingredients. This recipe is also good using ground turkey, chicken and lamb but when using these meats, I always saute before hand.
  • CHEERS!!!

    Wow this looks interesting, but I'm having trouble imagining what will happen when I put raw ground beef on a cold pita and toss it under the broiler. Doesn't the pita get all wet and greasy? OK I'm brave, I'll give it a shot. I like the ingredients and the cooking method will take some getting used to. OK I am psych'd. Thanks!
