Hey guys, welcome back to Dede’s Mediterranean Kitchen. Today we’re going to be making Lahme Bi Ajeen which is translated meat with dough. It’s served for lunch or dinner or even breakfast. Some people like to top it with cheese. Some people just like it as it is. Some people make it in different forms. I'm going to show you the simplest way to make it. It’s a great meat pie that’ served all over the Mediterranean. It’s healthy stuff like that, we don’t use a lot of oil so it’s really good. You can get this recipe and all my other recipes and spices at www.dedemed.com.
Now what we’re going to start off with is a pound of ground beef with a quarter pound of ground lamb. And remember, the lamb keeps the meat more moist. It’s fattier than the beef so it helps keep it moist. If you don’t like lamb, you can just use beef. It’s not that big of a deal. So I have the ground lamb in a bowl. I’m going to add about half teaspoon fresh ground pepper. I’m going to add one table spoon of salt and one tea spoon of seven spices. Remember, the seven spices, you can buy them on my website. I’m going to add a half cup of finely chopped tomatoes and then a half cup of finely chopped onions, yellow onions, they add more of a flavor than the sweeter red onions. And just mix it all together until it combined very well.
Now for the dough, you’re going want to refer back to my dough video. It’s a simple dough, it’s used for all kinds of pies, meat pies, breakfast pies, pizza and it’s really easy to make. So just combine it all up. If you don’t like to use your hand, you can use a wooden spoon, that’s okay I know some people are pretty good about these kinds of things. Just like that, put that in the side and you’re going to roll out the dough into about an eight of an inch thick. You don’t want it to be too thick and you don’t want them too thin. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and you’re going to cook this four about 15 to 17 minutes on until you see that they’re crispy.
Now, when you’re cooking them, juice is going to come out of your meat, which is okay. It will just flow over. It’s not that big of a deal. So don’t get worried if you see that there’s juices falling. So just roll this out, not too thin and some flour and then you want to put it on a baking sheet that’s sprinkled with some corn flour. The corn flour helps to keep it from sticking and instead of using oil, the corn flour helps save some of the calories. So there is wine and you need to want to spread it with your hand rightly floured or you don’t want too much flour and you can flour with a rolling pin as well, helps to keep it from sticking.
Here you are, that’s round circle. So now I have them on my pan. What you’re going to do is you’re going to get say about a half cup of any egg stir and just flatten it on to the dough. Give a little room on the edge, give a little crust, that’s okay and just press it down. Now if you don’t like to make the dough and you think it’s going to be too difficult for you, which is not, I really suggest you give it a try, it’s not that hard to make, you can use pita. Just like I'm flattening it on the dough, just flatten it on the pita. And you’re going want to cook it for about 10 to 12 minutes. It’s a little bit shorter cooking time but taste just as great.
Just like that, pop it in the oven 15 to 17 minutes until the bottom of the dough is golden brown and the top is a little bit brown. Now, I have some that already done and it tastes great with yogurt. You can either use the yogurt which is with some dill and cucumber or you can just use plain Mediterranean yogurt. It’s a little bit more sour than your regular yogurt. That’s what it looks like. The meat is going to shrink a little because, you know, the fat that’s in there. And see how it’s slightly brown, that’s’ what you want. You can fold it or I see some people they fold it over and they serve it like that or you can just save it nice and round with some of the yogurt. It tastes great and you can reheat them whenever you want. You can take them on a trip with you. They’re really good, it’s really easy to make.
