Some of the best pleasures are simple ones, including incredible street food. Lebanon is filled with some of the most amazing cuisine around the world but often times it’s the street food that really hits home.
Sfeeha is a variation of a meat pie or fatayar, it is more of a pizza than a pie. Traditionally made with with ground beef, I wanted to create a lamb version since my family LOVES lamb. I knew the rich lamb flavor, tangy pomegranate molasses and yogurt would really meld well together to create the perfect bite.
I teamed up with my friends at the American Lamb Board this last month to not only get a sneak peek of the life of a sheep rancher but also bring you this delicious recipe. Showcasing another simple and delicious meal perfect for weeknight meals or a quick lunch idea.
Park City, UT
I had the wonderful pleasure of visiting Park City, UT with the American Lamb Board and Circle JB Ranch a few weeks ago. Besides the absolutely picturesque skies in Utah, I got a firsthand look at how lamb are cared for and ultimately make for the best lamb right in our own backyard.
Not only is American Lamb 10,000 miles fresher than other lamb, but sheep recycle vital nutrients back into the soil which also helps to restore damaged landscapes and manage invasive weeds.
It truly gives me pleasure to know that buying American lamb helps support local family farmers and ranchers who care for the their animals and land they graze. With over 6 million sheep throughout the United States and more than 80,000 family farmers and ranchers, choosing American Lamb is a no-brainer.
Sfeeha is prepared much like pizza, a soft yeast dough is prepared, then topped with delicious ingredients. In this case, I’ve used a mixture of ground lamb, pomegranate molasses, yogurt, tomato, onion, all spice, cinnamon, salt and pepper to create a tangy and unique meat pie.
A quick sear on the stove top then broil in the oven gives these open-faced meat pies a nice soft texture that are protein packed and the perfect weeknight meal or lunch.
Find the simple recipe below using my quick and easy pizza dough or use store bought dough to make the process even easier. As always, I love seeing your creations. Be sure to tag me on Instagram or Facebook! Find this recipe on the American Lamb Board page as well.
