I was planning on making samosas, and got lazy....that's how this little recipe was born. :) Middle Eastern flavors formed into sausages and skewered.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and let rest in the refrigerator for about a half an hour.
  2. Form into sausage like shapes and thread onto skewers.
  3. Heat oil on griddle over medium heat and fry the kebabs, turning until browned on all sides and cooked through, about 10-15 minutes depending on thickness.
  4. Alternatively, you can grill the skewers (be sure to soak the skewers first if they are made of bamboo).
  5. Serve with lebne (cucumber, yogurt and mint sauce), or sliced cucumbers and tomatoes.

Very good...instead of beef, used ground lamb and dried rosemary instead of mint.

I feel awful giving a recipe 3 stars, but despite trying these twice and following the directions exactly, I just didn't find them as enjoyable as I'd hoped. I used lean ground beef both times, though, and will be trying them a third time with a mixture of ground lamb and beef.

These kebobs were really enjoyed. I did halve the recipe,using ground sirloin which can be dry, but the onion and egg (for which I used egg substitute)added enough moisture to solve that problem. Chose not to use the optional added oil. I enjoyed the mix of spices and also chose to add some fresh garlic, fresh parsley and cayenne to the mix as we both like our spice. I also have a bumper crop of mint right now so I used fresh instead of dry and the combination of it all was really great. Thank you Canarygirl for sharing the recipe.
