<p />was eating meatpies at the lebanese bakery the other day and figured the egg could make these alot better and it did. these are really good. altered the recipe by salting down the onions a bit and sqeezing out some liquid, added some garam masala, nutmeg, and some fresh lemon juice. used a store bought pizza dough (made by another lebanese bakery) rolled thin. baked a few min at 400 til the meat was sizzling and opened the vents wide open til the browning was to my liking.[p]100_1546.jpg[p]100_1548.jpg[p]100_1550.jpg[p]sfeeha (lebanese meat pies),tebouleh salad, humus tahini, and some lebne spread. the linked recipe made 21 small pies. these pies would work with any filling, pizza, rueben, pork tourtere, meatloaf etc.

    fishlessman,[p]Looks like you have your soapstone gridle upside down on fire bricks. Upside down just to fit under the dome? [p]You might like to look up a merguez Moroccan sausage recipe. It calls for lamb, and depending on the spice mix, can be fairly hot. I'd bet it would be a good filling, and pair well with the meal you made.[p]I used my new soapstone gridle last night to make some bacon and eggs. Its great the way it heats up, and the food doesn't stick. It took awhile to get the dome to 450, and I'm supposing the stone was about that too. Bacon took maybe 3 minutes, sizzling from the first second, and the eggs took maybe 1. Bacon was nicely crisped and the eggs brown edged and bubbly.[p]gdenby

    gdenby,
    i use the top side of the griddle for greasy stuff and the bottom side for baking and pizzas as it stays cleaner. one side is oily, the other side stays clean and dry. ill look up that recipe, im making some greek sausage with lamb for lukanika soon as i found a bottle of greek retsina. maybe make half of the leg into the stuff you mentioned.

    Those look great. I'm setting up a middle eastern dish for tonight, veal breast. Rubbed it with a mix of salt, pepper, paprika, cayenne, and cinnamon and will stuff with rice, raisins and I'm not sure what else yet.

    Essex County,
    dont know if you have ever found this place yet, good pita breads, yogurts, labne, spinach pies, hookahs etc. i just did a quote for them for a 10000 pound sesame seed bin, they make alot of stuff for the resteraunts around here. only problem is trying to figure out what your buying, not much english on the labels and many foods once you know what it is, are spelled horrendously different from one label to the next. the market area looks a little grundgy, but in back where its not open to the public in the baking areas its top notch clean.

    YB,
    i cut the directions in half, and even less onion than what it says, for the 21 smal pies, circles were about 4.5 inches. wixed the spice with the yogurt and added until it tasted strong, then added the meat

  • fishlessman,
    Not sure what place you are refering to. Is it in Methuen?
    My wife's birthday is coming up and nothing says "I love you" like a nice hookah.
