Kafta Kabob

Now that the weather is finally starting to brighten up and grilling season is here, I wanted to share my Kafta Kabob recipe, which my family and I enjoy in the summer days. Kafta Kabob can also be just as enjoyable either baked in the oven or even cooked in a skillet pan on top of the stove.

Make this very simple Lebanese kafta kebob recipe and enjoy it grilled or baked.

Kafta is a mix of spiced ground beef, parsley and onions. Preparing Kafta is very easy, all you need to do is mince the parsley and onion using a food processor or by hand and mix it very well with the spiced beef.

I usually make a bunch and freeze some for future use.

Prep Time: 20 mins Cook Time: 20 mins Yield: 10 skewers

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb of ground beef (5% fat)
  • 2 large onions
  • 1 parsley bunch (with stems removed)
  • 2 tbsp All Spice
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp o salt (or to taste)
  • Skewers
  • Cooking spray

Instructions:

  • Add parsley and onion to a food processor and mix very well until finely minced.
  • In a large bowl, add meat, spices, and the already minced onions and parsley – Mix until incorporated.
  • Take a small handful of the mixture, and form into an oblong shape. Repeat for the rest of the mixture.
  • Thread the skewer through the oblong shaped kafta and place on a tray.
  • Once you’ve done them all – place in the fridge for 30 minutes. This step will avoid the kabobs from falling apart.
  • Heat the grill to 350° F.
  • Spray your kebabs with cooking spray, and place on the grill for 10 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
  • Add Hummus as a side, and you will have a delicious, low-carb meal !
