Sniyit kafta

Hibah from hibahthefoodaholic featured on my page recently!

She made the most delicious looking dish called sniyit kafta.

Sniyit kafta is a Middle Eastern dish that consists of a layer of ground beef mixed with parsley, onion, and spices, topped with sliced potatoes, then finally, sliced tomatoes that is then baked to perfection. I added Serrano peppers on top also! It is absolutely delicious and it’s very easy to make!



-5 lbs of ground beef

-3 onions (grate by hand or put them in the food processor, you want them very finely grated.)

-2 cups of finely cut parsley

-6 medium size potatoes (peeled and sliced)

-6 tomatoes (sliced)

-2.5 Tbs black pepper

-2 Tbs 7 spice

-1 tsp cardamom

-Salt to taste

-Serrano peppers- whole (optional)




1.) Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2.) Mix ground beef, onion, parsley and all spices together very well.

3.) Layer ground beef mixture in a tray. Then on top of that, spread out your slices of potatoes. Finally, on top of that, spread out the tomatoes. It’s optional to add Serrano peppers on top if you like spiciness.

4.) Sprinkle the top with a dash of salt and black pepper.

5.) Put in oven covered for an hour, then uncover and place back in the oven until most of the liquid dissolves or potatoes are tender.




1.) Remember this recipe was for a lot of people, you can always half or quarter this recipe.
