Beef Kofta Sandwiches

  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup finely minced red onion
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground allspice
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 flatbread buns (or other kind of bun)
  • Fresh spinach
  • Grape tomatoes, halved
  • Baby cucumbers, sliced
  • Thinly sliced red onion
  • Plain yogurt mixed with feta cheese

Preheat the oven to 450° F.

In a large bowl, combine the first 10 ingredients (ground beef through ground black pepper) with your hands until it is well-blended. Form the mixture into small balls, about an inch and a half apart. Place the kofta balls 1 inch apart on an ungreased sheet pan and press them lightly to flatten them.

Bake the beef kofta for 12-15 minutes or until the center is done.

Serve 3 pieces per bun with fresh spinach, sliced grape tomatoes, sliced cucumbers, thinly sliced red onion, and feta-yogurt sauce.
