Ground Beef on Turkish Bread

(Kiymali Ekmek)

Ground Beef on Turkish Bread
Half of day-old Turkish bread (French, Artisan or Italian bread)

~200 gr lean ground beef or lamb
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, sliced
1-2 garlic clove, sliced
3-5 tbsp crushed tomato, canned
1 tsp red pepper paste
Crushed (flakes) pepper

Saute the onion with olive oil for about 1-2 minutes. Add the garlic, when the smell of garlic comes out add the ground beef, crushed tomato, red pepper paste, crushed pepper, salt and pepper. Cook until all the water evaporates of the ground beef. Occasionally stir and break the ground beef. Split in half the bread. Spread the filling all over the cut side. Arrange the lemon slices on top. Put the breads on the oven tray.

Preheat the oven to 450 F (230 C). Place the tray middle rack. Cook for about 15 minutes or until the edges of bread golden. Squeeze the lemon juice or sprinkle some sumac all over it. Serve while still warm with Ayran and Parsley Salad. If you like slice them up and serve as a finger food at your party:)

2 servings.
