Lebanese Hummus with Ground Beef

As a Lebanese mom, there are two things I’m proud of: 1) the fact that my kids love hummus, and 2) the fact that my kids can pronounce hummus like they are FRESH off the boat! Ahhh, such simple joy! But for real, every time I make my Lebanese Hummus with Ground Beef, or just plain hummus for that matter, my kids swoon over the plate and practically wipe their plate clean…using the pita bread of course!

My Lebanese Hummus with Ground Beef is a recipe I learned from my parents. It's simple and authentic and topped with ground beef and pine nuts!

I hope they always love hummus, and more importantly, I hope they always have a love for Lebanese food like I do. And I know that’s mostly up to me, so I’m doing my part and always keeping up with Lebanese food appearances. Next I need to teach them some classic Lebanese songs and we’re set! hahaha

    Do you drain the chickpeas before using or include the liquid?

      It’s a combination of black pepper, paprika, cumin, coriander, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and cardamom.

    Great recipe. I always prefer this version despite spending lots of time in Israel where medicore hummus is served with that blasted Cumin unless you go to the Arab areas in Jaffo, Akko, and in particular Abu-Ghosh which is a town just on the road to Jerusalem where its like a Las Vegas of Hummus. hummus places everywhere. Some better than others but all supremely superior to anything you’d get from even Jaffa’s best Hummus.

    Question, Lebanese vs Palestinian hummus. I know Lebanese is obviously much more creamier as a result of more tahini being used. Is there like an accepted minimum/ maximum of tahini that shall not be crossed when preparing traditional Lebanese hummus?

      Hi there, thanks so much for the feedback and sharing your experience with me. I’m definitely partial to Lebanese hummus so I get where you’re coming from haha! And as for the tahini amount, I think it comes down to personal preference and you definitely don’t want it to overcome the taste the actual chickpeas. I hope that helps!

    I’ve often eaten this plate in Jordan, and am glad I found your recipe. Made a terrific Saturday night dinner for me and my wife. Had to substitute walnut and pistache for the pine nuts, what we had in the house. And celery leaves for the parsley. Still tasted fine. Thanks!
