This is a variation of a favorite dish from Madaba, Jordan where my father and my husband were from.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 inch baking pan with non-stick spray.
Place meat ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Press evenly in the bottom of the baking pan. Boil carrots in water to cover until half cooked, 5 to 7 minutes. Distribute carrots and remaining vegetables over meat. Mix the crushed tomatoes, water and 2 tsp DAMASCUS KIBBIE SPICE together in a bowl and pour over the vegetables. Cover tightly and bake 45 minutes, until vegetables are tender. Uncover and place under broiler until browned.
Serve over Syrian Rice, or for a one-dish meal add cubed potatoes with the vegetables.
