Lahmee bil khubuz (meat on a bread) لحمه بالخبز

This is a super simple Lebanese food to put together for lunch, dinner or a snack :D
It tastes delicious, and takes so little effort! You can use any type of bread that you like, we always have pitta bread in the freezer, so I used pitta for mine.







  • Skill level: Easy
  • Serves: 2-4 people
  • Preparation time: 5 mins
  • Cooking time: 15-20 mins
What you will need:

1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped
1 garlic clove, peeled and minced
1 tomato, finely chopped
300g minced meat
Just under 1/2 tbsp salt
1/2 tbsp black pepper
1/2 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp paprika
2 pitta bread, opened up to form 4 pieces of bread

How to make:

1) Place the ingredients (except the pitta bread) into a bowl. Mix well together using your hands, to ensure the ingredients are well combined

2) Divide the mixture over the pitta breads, pressing down and evenly distributing

3) Place into the oven on full blast for 15-20mins (keep an eye, as ovens will vary). Once the meat is cooked, remove and serve





This is perfect served hot with plain yoghurt. Enjoy the simplicity in this meal :)

    1. JazakiAllah khair :) the actual meat mixture is the delicious part, add it over whichever bread is available to you, I am sure you will enjoy it just as much. It's usually done on the flat round Arabic breads, but pitta is what is more readily available for me. So inshAllah try it with whatever bread you have.

    1. Walaikum alsalam sis. Ramadan Mubarak to you too :) Awww don't say that, honestly, you learn so much when attempting things, and one day you will be a pro at everything you make. There can be two reasons to cause a soggy bottom, either the meat you use is quite fatty, or the tomatoes quite soft. Although, I think most likely its the meat mixture. Beef is usually less fatty compared to lamb, and we normally prefer less fat in our minced meat. All the best inshAllah :)
