Although I love Shakshuka, Keema might just be one step up from it even though I’ll also argue at the same time that they can’t be put in the same group together. Keema is a popular breakfast dish in Libya and to sum it up, it’s eggs baked in hearty ground beef.
Usually we only have this on the weekends on rare occasions because starting your morning off with red meat is not always the healthiest option. Even back home in Libya, my dad remembers this dish as something very special because it was hard to come by BOTH eggs and ground beef. These ingredients that are pretty standard in the American diet had hefty price tags and weren’t in surplus when my dad was growing up.
We love to serve it with ftat which is a traditional Libyan flatbread (recipe coming soon!), but pita bread works just as well. Let me know in the comments, do you like Shakshuka or Keema more?
