Sfiha (Adapted)

Danyal Vierheller


I spent about 7 months attempting to duplicate a meal I had at Aladdin's Eatery (a Mediterranean food chain) that my husband and I absolutely fell in love with. Thanks to a spice blend I found on The Spice House's website, I was able to do so. It's spicy and sweet all at once, and actually pretty healthy all things considered. Enjoy!

pinch tips: How to Cream Butter & Sugar






10 Min


20 Min


1 lb
90% lean ground beef
3-4 clove
garlic, minced
small onion, chopped
1 can(s)
chopped tomatoes (seasoned)
1/3 c
pine nuts, toasted or raw
2-3 tsp
baharat seasoning
1 Tbsp
sesame oil
shredded sharp cheddar
chopped green onions
large fajita/pita bread

Directions Step-By-Step

Heat sesame oil in large skillet. Toss garlic and onion in the skillet and brown briefly. Add ground beef and brown. Mix in tomatoes, pine nuts, and spices. Stir and cook for about 10 minutes, then cover and simmer on medium-medium high for 10-15 minutes, until meat is no longer pink.
Remove from pan with slotted spoon. Use pita bread to wrap around ground beef. Top with cheddar and green onions for garnish.
*Note: Baharat seasoning can be ordered from The Spice House. Otherwise, it's a mix of black pepper, coriander, cumin, cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, Spanish paprika and chile peppers.
