Lebanese Meat Loaf with Potatoes (Kafta w Batata) - كفتة بالصينية

Ingredients: (4 persons)

Half a kilo or one pound of lean minced meat or ground beef
1 cup of chopped parsley
1 medium onion chopped
1 tablespoon of allspice
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 medium potatoes, peeled and cut in medium rounded slices
1 big onion sliced in medium rings
1 big tomato sliced in medium rings
1 to 2 cups of tomato sauce
Vegetable oil for frying or sauteing the potatoes
1 teaspoon of flour

Mix meat, parsley, chopped onion, spices, and salt together.  Let it sit for at least an hour in the refrigerator. Meanwhile, saute the potato slices in vegetable oil, and let drain on paper towel. Take the meat out of the fridge and make medium sized patties.
In a non-stick hot pan let the patties slightly cook by turning them. Remove into a separate dish. In an oven baking dish, deep enough to hold the tomato sauce, rub the bottom with some butter or vegetable oil and start layering: the meat first, then potatoes, sliced onion, sliced tomato. Add the tomato sauce mixed with 1 teaspoon of flour.
Bake into a 375 degrees oven for half an hour or until the sauce cooks and thickens with the rest of the ingredients. Serve with any salad of your choice.



    I adore Lebanese cooking and food!

  2. clearly not correct. 1/3 of a pound of meat with all that onion and seasonings makes it less meat than all the other items. Try again.
