Turkish Style Ground Beef and Chickpea Stew

My sisters and I were discussing Turkish food the other day, and that discussion evolved into this dish. It was excellent!

1 lb lean ground beef
1/2 onion, chopped
1 1/2 t cumin
2 cups dried chickpeas (soaked overnight), cooked and drained
1 small (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 cup beef broth
fresh lemon juice to taste
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
dried mint, to serve

In a large frying pan or skillet over medium high heat, brown the ground beef. Drain. Add onion and cook til onion softens, about 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients; cover and simmer over medium heat for 20 minutes. Taste and adjust as desired.

I served this dish with a pinch of dried mint.http://media-files.gather.com/images/d254/d214/d746/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg
