Kofta

Everyone LOVES food on a stick. Yakitori… Kebabs… Cake Pops… and let’s not forget our ingenious childhood Pogo’s.

My favourite “sticked” dish at the Lebanese restaurant in my hood is Kofta. It is an aromatic mix of minced meat, onions and spices, served with fresh pita, hummus, rice and tabbouleh. I can’t rave about it more. I wanted to make my own at home using organic ingredients, and I was surprised at how simple, cheap and tasty the results were!

Ingredients: 

Let’s go:

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat. If using wooden skewers, soak in water.IMG_1907
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, onion, parsley, cayenne, allspice, salt and pepper until evenly blended. Divide into 6 portions, and press around one end of the skewers to form a log shape approximately 1 inch thick and 6 inches long.
  3. Grill for 10 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally, until meat is no longer pink.
