- 1 bunch fresh parsley, chopped
- 3 medium onions, finely chopped
- 1 1/2 pounds ground lamb
- 2 teaspoons ground allspice
- 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1 medium tomato, sliced
step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
step 2: In a large bowl, mix together the parsley, onions, lamb, allspice, lemon zest, salt and butter until well blended. Use your hands for best results. Place in a baking dish, or pat into a 2 inch tall round on a baking sheet with sides. Arrange tomato slices on top.
step 3: Bake uncovered for 50 minutes in the preheated oven, until no longer pink and the internal temperature has reached at least 160 degrees F (72 degrees C). Serve with pita bread or rice.
