How To Make Kebab


1 medium yellow onion, quartered

2 garlic cloves

1 whole bunch parsley, stems removed (about 2 packed cups parsley leaves)

1 lb ground beef

1/2 lb ground lamb

1 slice of bread, toasted until browned and soaked in water until fully tender

Salt and pepper

1 1/2 tsp ground allspice

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

1/2 tsp ground green cardamom

1/2 tsp ground sumac

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

1/2 tsp paprika

Pita bread to serve

How To Make:Tomato wedges

Onion wedges

More parsley


Soak 10 wooden skewers in water for about 1 hour; remove from the water when you are ready to begin. Lightly oil the grates of a gas grill and preheat it to medium high for about 20 minutes.

Prepare the pita bread and the fixings. If you plan to, make the tahini sauce from this recipe

In a food processor, chop the onion, garlic, and parsley.

Add the beef, lamb, bread (be sure to squeeze out the water completely), and the spices. Run the processor until all is well combined forming a pasty meat mixture.

Remove the meat mixture from the food processor and place in a large bowl. Take a fistful portion of the meat mixture and mold it on a wooden skewer. Repeat the process until you have run out of meat. For best results, make sure each kofta kebab is about 1 inch in thickness.

Lay the skewered kofta kebabs on a tray lined with parchment paper

Place the kofta kebabs on the lightly oiled, heated gas grill. Grill on medium-high heat for 4 minutes on one side, turn over and grill for another 3-4 minutes.

Serve the kofta kebabs immediately with pita bread, tahini and the fixings you prepared. See suggestions for sides and related recipes.

½ cup panko bread crumbs

2 tbsp chopped onion

1 tbsp canola oil

¼ tsp salt

1/8 tsp pepper
