Beef Kofta

  • 1 T. Penzeys turkish seasoning (or similar spice blend)
  • 1 medium red onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 c. loosely packed fresh parsley leaves (I prefer flat leaf), chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 T. grated fresh ginger
  • 2 lbs. ground beef

At least 2 hours and up to 2 days prior to cooking these kebabs, assemble the meat mixture. Combine all of the ingredients in a large, resealable container and, using your hands, mix well. Allow the meat the chill in the refrigerator until you are ready to continue cooking.

Using your hands, form long, thin patties and gently press soaked wooden skewers into them, lengthwise. The skewers are optional, but they do make grilling, in particular, easier.

Prepare your grill or heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Cook the skewers until fully cooked, about 15-20 minutes, turning at least once during the cooking process. Serve the skewers hot with yogurt sauce, if desired.

  • Yields: 6-8 servings
  • Preparation Time: 30 minutes plus chilling time
