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.
