Grilled Meat-On-A-Stick (Kafta Kebabs)

Seasoned ground meat is packed around skewers and grilled for this classic Middle-Eastern dish. This recipe was published by my grandmother-in-law's Armenian Orthodox church. If you're using beef, don't use leaner than 85/15 fat percentage or the kebabs will tend to fall apart. You can find a recipe for Syrian pepper in my profile, or substitute a 50-50 blend of ground pepper and allspice.

  • Thoroughly mix all ingredients. Chill for at least 30 minutes.
  • Pack handfuls of the meat mixture onto skewers to form cylinders about 1" thick.
  • Grill uncovered over high heat, turning the skewers as the meat browns, until the kebabs are brown on all sides and the meat is cooked through, around 10-12 minutes. Serve with rice pilaf and salad.
