Lubia is a Lebanese dish that I grew up eating. I've tweaked it bit and made it my own. Give it a try!


1 lb. lean ground beef
2 onions, halved and thinly sliced
1 (28 oz.) can of diced tomatoes, San Marzano preferably
2 lbs. fresh green beans
2-3 tsp. Syrian Spice
1 tsp. Kosher salt
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
white rice


1. Brown beef in large Dutch oven.
2. Add onions to the pot and cook until soft.
3. Add Syrian spice, salt, and red pepper flakes; mix together.
3. Add tomatoes; bring to a simmer.
4. Add green beans. Cover and let it simmer for 15-25 minutes to soften beans. Don't cook too long...I like to keep the beans on the crunchier side.
5. Serve on top a bed of rice.
