Description

The most deliciously seasoned ground beef or lamb with pine nuts goes right over hummus for a savory, protein-packed appetizer. Inspired by my favorite Brooklyn-based Israeli restaurant!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Hummus
  • ¼ cups Toasted Pine Nuts
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1-½ pound Ground Beef (or Lamb, Turkey, Venison, It All Works!)
  • 2 Tablespoons Za'atar
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • ½ teaspoons Smoked Paprika
  • 1-½ cup Beef Stock
  • Pita Bread For Serving
  • TOPPINGS: Fresh Mint Leaves, Flaky Salt, Olive Oil, Pine Nuts, More Zaatar

Preparation

Preheat a large skillet to medium-high heat. Add the butter with a drizzle of oil and add the ground meat.
Cook the meat, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you go. When the meat is browned and crumbly, add the zaatar, salt cumin, and smoked paprika.

Stir to coat the meat with the spices and let the spices toast for 2 minutes or so. Add the stock and reduce the heat to medium-low.

Allow the meat to simmer for about 10 minutes until the stock is mostly reduced – the meat should be saucy but not soupy. Taste the meat and add more salt if needed – it should taste excellent. Stir in the pine nuts and turn the heat off.

To serve, make a bed of hummus and spoon the spiced ground meat with pine nuts right in the center. Add toppings if you’d like. Serve with pita and anything else you’d like for dipping. Enjoy!

NOTE: This recipe was inspired by the HUMMUS MEAT at 12 Chairs Cafe in Brooklyn, which I love and adore and can’t wait to go back to.
