How to Make Roast Meat Pistachio Patties

Roast Meat Pistachio Patties


Inspired from both our Lebanese roasted meatloaf and our Kafta Meat Balls, these delicious patties took form in my kitchen this week. It is a new recipe though. It isn’t Kafta neither our meatloaf we call Rosto.

I aimed for an extra dish of meat at my reception “self-help” dinner table. The outcome was more than great. They came out delicious, looked very appetizing on the table, and served the purpose.

These patties are made with extra lean ground beef. I enhanced it with minced garlic, fresh mint, dry onion flakes, tomato sauce. A good seasoning that I boosted further with salt and Lebanese 7-Spice. And, of course, the pistachio nuts roughly grounded and blended in.


The Lebanese 7-Spice is a combination of healthy spices and aromas. I always advise my readers to have it on their Spice Rack, for it flavors deliciously most cooked dishes. You can find it in Lebanese restaurants or you can compose it yourself by following the instruction at Lebanese 7-Spice Power-Health. Otherwise, you can season the meat here with the spices of your choice.


The whole preparation takes less than 10 minutes. While roasting the patties, prepare a rich salad to side them with.

I can recommend the Fattoush or the Tabbouleh. However, I have various great salad recipes here for you to choose from. Just input the word ‘salad’ in the search box above, and make your pick.

Enjoy them!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 8 patties (about)


  • 500 gr Ground Beef (extra lean)
  • 1 Garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp Tomato Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Pistachio Nuts roughly broken down
  • 5 tbsps Flour plus some extra

For Seasoning

  • 1 tsp Dry Onion Flakes
  • 2-3 leaves Fresh Mint finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp Salt or as desired
  • 1/2 tsp Lebanese 7-Spice You may substitue with spices of your choice.


  • A baking tray covered with a baking sheet
  • Oil Spray


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F or 200 C.

    In a bowl, knead well the meat and season. Mix the garlic with the tomato sauce, and then mix them with the meat. 

    Add the Pistachio nuts and blend them well through. Sprinkle the 5 tbsps of flour and mix it all very well until you get a consistent meat-dough. If the meat is still clinging on your fingers, or feels still somehow wet-y, add 1 tsp of flour or as needed. 

  2. Spray oil on the baking sheet. 

    Using your hands, create medium sized meat-balls, flatten them a little to create thick rounded patties (Please refer to photos), and start arranging them on the baking sheet, leaving enough space between them.

    Spray more oil over the patties, and place them in the oven. Allow them to cook for 25 minutes then flip them over to cook for 15 minutes.

    Transfer them onto a serving plate and serve at once. 

    Enjoy them!
