Mousaka with Bechamel Sauce (Besamel Soslu Musakka)


200 gr (~1/2 lb) ground beef, medium
4-5 medium potatoes, chopped in bite sizes
1 big onion, chopped
2 tbsp tomato, diced or crushed
½ tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp salt
½ tsp paprika
¼ tsp cumin
¼ tsp black pepper
1 cup hot water
Béchamel Sauce:
3 cups milk
3 tbsp flour, heaping
8 tbsp (100-125 gr) butter /margarine
2 eggs, beaten
½ tsp salt

Place the ground beef in a large skillet and sauté over medium heat till its color changes (no need to add oil). Add onion and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, salt and spices and mix. Finally, add potatoes and sauté for 5 minutes. Place the mixture into a Pyrex dish and add the hot water. Place the Pyrex dish into 400F (200 C) preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes (see the picture).
Béchamel Sauce:
Place the butter in a pot and melt. Add the flour and sauté over low heat till its color change to yellow. Then, add milk and stir continuously to make Béchamel sauce smooth and even. If flour particles don’t dissolve use a blender. Add the salt and cook for 3 minutes. Turn the heat off, add the eggs and stir.
Take the Pyrex dish off the oven. Pour the Béchamel sauce evenly on top of it. Place the Pyrex dish back to the oven and bake until the surface of Béchamel sauce is brown (about 20-25 minutes).
ENJOY
