4 slices of day-old Turkish bread (French, Artisan or Italian bread)
100 gr lean ground beef
1 small onion, sliced
1 large tomato, peeled, diced
1-2 tbsp crushed tomato, canned
1/2 cup plain Turkish yogurt, room temperature
1-2 garlic cloves, mashed with salt
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
Saute the onion, ground beef, salt and pepper at medium-low heat until all the water evaporates. Add the tomato and crushed tomato. Cook few more minutes until tomatoes are softened. Leave some juice in it!
Meanwhile, cut the bread in cubes. Place on an oven tray and drizzle some olive oil, salt and pepper on top, toss. Preheat your oven to 175 C (350 F) and bake for about 10-15 minutes.
Place the bread cubes in a serving dish. Pour some yogurt sauce on them. Put the cooked ground beef all over it.
Melt the butter in a small skillet and add the red peppers. Pour over the dish when you see it starts bubbling. Serve while still hot.
