Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Lebanese Spiced Beef Pittas & Tahini Yoghurt

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 400°F/ Gas 6 and boil a kettle

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic, then chop the parsley finely (including the stalks)

Dissolve the beef stock cube[s] in 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] boiled water, then add the beef mince, beef stock, garlic, half the parsley, ras el hanout and a pinch of black pepper and give everything a good mix up

Close the pitta pocket and press down firmly – these are your beef arayes

Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and give it a good mix up – this is your tahini yoghurt

Chop the cucumber roughly
