    Molly53's Note:

    Delicious served with hot rice. This recipe works better if you use flattened skewers so that the meat doesn't roll when you turn it. Overnight chilling not included in preparation time. Use a spacer between the grill grates and the skewers to prevent meat sticking or spray the grates liberally with cooking spray before heating the grill.

    1. 1
      Drain the juice from the grated onion very well.
    2. 2
      Mix all ingredients well; cover and refrigerate overnight.
    3. 3
      Divide the meat into 10-12 portions.
    4. 4
      Press each portion around long metal skewers and shape evenly (you're looking for a sausage shape).
    5. 5
      Place the skewers a few inches away from the grill coals.
    6. 6
      Turn frequently to brown and then cook each side for a few minutes.

      Excellent. I followed recipe except used ground turkey meat, 7% fat, left in fridge 2 hours, then made some sausage like rolls, fried them with pan top on, in olive oil till done (about 165Fº), then put under broiler to brown. everyone loved them. My wife has lived in Iran and thought it ranked very well with what she remembered.

      WOW!! This was better than any restaurant I've had, my husband couldn't tell what type of meat I used, he couldn't believe it was ground beef, because it was so moist and flavorful. I did have a problem with the meat falling off the skewer though any tips would be helpful....

      Holy Moses these are good! Aside from adding chopped parsley (which I did), I can't think of anything to make them better except to make more!! I served it with tzatziki sauce, basmati rice, halloumi cheese and an arugula and tomato salad. YUM!
