Beef Keema

Oxmoor House
Keema is an Indian-style ground meat dish made with either lamb or beef. The spiced beef mixture is thick and chili-like and is traditionally served with an Indian flatbread called naan. We've used store-bought pita bread as an easy-to-find alternative.
4 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup beef mixture, 1 pita wedge, and 1 lime wedge)
