DIRECTIONS

  • Place hamburger meat in a bowl, and add salt, and some Mixed spices. If you don't have mixed spices, there are a couple recipes on this website for mixed spices. Or, you can add salt, all season, cumin, black pepper, and adobo.
  • Using a food processer or blender, chop 1 onion and 1 cup of fresh parsley. If you dont have fresh parsley, dry parsley will work, just make sure its chopped finely. Add both the onion and the parsley to the hamburger meat, and mix well.
  • Next, you can either make good sized meatballs with the hamburger meat, or make them longer, short of like fat stubby fingers. Do this until you have used up all the hamburger meat, and put these on the bottom of a baking pan with at least a 1 inch edge to it.
  • Peel the onions and the potatoes, and core the green peppers. Cut them each into four pieces, and place in the pan with the hamburger meat. Also cut the tomatoe into four pieces and add as well.
  • In a blender, add 1 heaping tablespoon of tahina, squeeze one lemon into the blender, and add a teaspoon of salt. Then fill the blender half way with water, and mix well.
  • Poor the blender mixture on top of the meat and vegetables, and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.
  • This is normally serves over rice, or can be eaten with pita bread. Enjoy!
