I love ground meat. All kinds of ground meat. Turkey, beef, lamb, chicken, I love them all. Shepherd’s Pie, meatballs, hamburgers, chili, sloppy joe’s, meatloaf, tacos, lasagna; really, I can go on and on! I love the different ways to spice the meat and that it’s an incredibly versatile ingredient.

|Form flatish logs, about 4″ long, around two pre-soaked wooden skewers
(so that the skewers don’t burn on the grill)
|Ready for the grill!|
|Preheated your grill
(I used an indoor cast iron grill that goes over two burners)

Beef & Lamb Kofta Kabobs
Makes approximately 20 kabobs
2 pounds ground beef
1 pound ground lamb
1 small white onion, grated
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup flat leaf parsley (tightly packed), finely chopped
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp ground ginger (or 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger)
freshly ground black pepper
40 wooden skewers, soaked in cold water for 20-30 minutes
1. In a large bowl mix all ingredients together.
2. Make small flat-ish logs, about 4″ long, out of the mince meat mixture and wrap them tightly around two wooden skewers.
3. Preheat grill on medium/high. (Outdoor charcoal grills work best, but these kabobs were made on an indoor stovetop grill and were fabulous!) and cook kebabs, about 4 minutes on each side.
Eat, Drink & Be Yummy!
