1 lb ground beef mince

4-5 eggplants (long eggplants) couple of big ones

1 tomato (cut in half)

2 green peppers (any kind of long and thin or bell peppers will work)

1 clove garlic (chopped fine)

1 small onion (grated)

1 tsp red pepper flakes

¼ tsp ground black pepper

1 ¼ tsp salt

For the Sauce:

2 tbsp tomato sauce

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp salt

1 cup cold water

For Soaking Eggplant:

5 cups cold water

2 tsp salt

Mix ground beef, garlic, grated onions, red pepper flakes, black pepper and salt well.

Pull a walnut sized piece and slightly flattern the mince making lots of patties.

Cut the eggplants 1-1.5 inches wide.

Cut as many pieces as the number of mince patties.  Soak the eggplants in the salted cold water for about 30 minutes to get out any bitterness that may exist. In a round pan, arrange the beef and eggplants by alternating with one piece of eggplant and one piece of meat starting from the edge of the pan until all the meat and eggplants are used up. In the middle of the pan of each line for Decoratiins, place the tomato halves, and peppers around the sides and inside any gaps in the meat.

Make up the sauce and pour all over the dish

Enjoycover with aluminum foil.

Bake at 400º F for about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Remove aluminum foil and continue to bake for another 15 minutes until the vegetables show signs of roasting. Five minutes of broiling also will work.

Enjoy with rice pilaf or just flat bread.

i also do a yummy garlic yogurt dip sometimes.


Enjoy and don’t forget to let me know how it goes.
