Flavourful & delicious, soft as someone said like meatloaf. DH ate them well, DD (todder) and I liked them a lot. I made ours gluten free using white rice flour and less than 1/2 the amount of tapioca starch, I added more flour than called for (white rice flour), being gluten free. I used ground beef, orange bell pepper, a good canned plum tomatoes without juice inside, probably extra onion, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, both to taste, plus the rest of the ingredients. I pan fried ours in a cast iron frying pan in some canola oil. Served these along with Pine Nut Rice Pilaf (Piñon Rice Pilaf) using dried parsley in place of oregano, Beet Root and Apple Raita, and a fresh salad with Afghan Salad Dressing for a great meal masha Allah. I would make these again as they are one of the better kebab recipes I have found. Made for, JULY 2011 NA/ME TAG :)%u200F

I've been making Middle Eastern Kabob for years being that I was married to an Iranian. If you can go to a Middle Eastern Spice store they will lead you to the correct spices. Kabob really is not a spicey food but it is flavorful this is not to be BBQed you should bake it. But You can do it how you want. It is served over a bed of White Rice and eat it with Pita Bread no Fork needed.. Pita is the Generic Persian Flat Bread unless you have a Persian or Middle Eastern Store than sells the Traditional Barbari or Sangak Bread..

Really good...I loved the complex flavors. I pan fried mine, cuz I didn't want to heat up the oven. Made for ZWT 6 and the Looney Spoon Phoodies.

This was excellent! I didn't have cilantro and I left out the egg, but it was fantastic. The texture is very soft, almost like meatloaf, and the flavor is nice. I served it with curried rice. Big hit!

These tasted like tiny meatloaf balls. I think you've invented a new recipe! ;) Used a tomato from the farmer's market and baked at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. Served with plain quinoa, steamed green beans and tossed salad. For fun, I also replaced the flour with brown rice flour which I whirled in a spice mill. I liked the texture-it was different! Reviewed for NA*ME tag/July.
