Easy Kofta Kebabs


Kofta Kebab is my FAVORITE mediterranean dish. My goodness is there anything better than perfectly seasoned ground beef or lamb with fresh herbs fired on an open grill? I like this recipe because the seasoning can be applied to ground turkey, beef, or lamb. I used beef and and served the meal with sliced tomatoes and yogurt sauce.

Recipe yields 4 servings

  • 1.5 pounds of lean ground beef, lamb, or turkey
  • 1/4 cup finely diced onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 4 tablespoons of kofta seasoning
  •  olive oil
  • 8 skewers soaked in water

In a large bowl, combine meat, onion, parsley, and kofta seasoning but do not overmix. Using a large spoon, take a scoop of 2 oz of meat and mold into a ball and add to skewer. Add 2-3 meatballs per skewer and repeat with remaining meat. Lightly drizzle with good olive oil. Grill 5 minutes on each side.
