Lebanese Hushwee (Spiced Meat)

Hushwee is a staple dish in Lebanese households. It is considered a peasant food and has been called “poor man’s food.” It’s one of those dishes that has quite a few variations and every household has their special version of hush wee. This is a very simple version. Hushwee is also very often prepared with rice. The ground meat used varies by recipe and you can use lamb, pork, chicken or beef.

We like using ground pork because it has a stronger flavor than ground beef, yet is less expensive than using ground lamb. And, we also save a little by using toasted almonds rather than pine nuts.
