Lahmacun or Turkish Meat Pies – much better than pizza, and a lot healthier.
Author: Joanna Cismaru

Serves: 8


For the crust

5 cups all purpose flour
1½ cups milk
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 tbsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp active dry yeast

For meat mixture

1 lb ground beef
1 yellow bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
2 tomatoes
1 large onion
4 cloves garlic
1 tbsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp chili flakes
1 tsp ground cumin
1 handful of parsley


  1. Warm the milk in the microwave so that it’s lukewarm. Add sugar and yeast to milk, mix and let it rest until yeast dissolves.
  2. In the bowl of your mixer add the flour, salt and mix. Add yeast mixture and using the dough hook mix for a couple minutes. Place the dough in an oiled bowl, cover with damp towel and let sit for an hour or two until it doubles in size.
  3. Place all the meat mixture ingredients, minus meat, in food processor and pulse until it resembles salsa. Pour the salsa mixture over the meat and mix thoroughly.
  4. Preheat panggangan to 500 F degrees.
  5. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces. Roll out each piece so that it’s about 12 inches in diameter and about 2 mm in thickness. Place the rolled out dough onto a pizza pan, or a cookie sheet. Take a couple spoonfuls of the meat mixture and thinly spread it over the dough. Bake for about 5 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Repeat with remaining dough and meat mixture.
  6. Serve sprinkled with lemon juice and topped with lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, onion and rolled up, if preferred.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
