Iranian Chelo Kabob

This was one of my favorite dishes when we were stationed in Iran. My children still request this often. It's simple & very tasty. Ground lamb is hard to get where I live so I use hamburger.

    These were alright to good but I feel they could have been better. I used extra learn ground beef though so maybe more fat would have made them more tasty. I added some canola oil upon mixing the ingredients which I let sit in the refrigerator over night. I added a bit of sumac to the meat as well. After cooked I shook on more sumac (love it) and drizzled with melted butter. Served with Saffron rice a fresh salad and a yogurt dish to scoop on top like sauce.

    Very nice. I added an extra 2 garlic cloves, double the marjoram and add a little allspice. My family likes a lot of spice! It tasted excellent and held together well as a sausage. Will be sure to make it again.

    Good version of this dish, there are several different ways to prepare. Use Sumac( a powdered berry spice) in the mix and store ready mixture a few hours in fridge. There is a kabob maker stacker for sale available online that helps in preparing the kaboba . You should fix the mixture around flat kabob skewers flat and about 1/2 inch wide long metal skewers, that way the heat will be evenly conducted to the center of the kabob and you can easily turn them on the grill or under the broiler. This web site sells the kabob mold/ stacker http://kalamala.com/kabob-maker-p-1290.html The following web site also sells the skewers, you are looking for koubideh skewers ( they are the right size) http://kalamala.com/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=kebob+skewers Good luck and good eats.

    I was looking for something different to do with a pound of ground beef, and this was it! The flavors were incredible, but I couldn't get it to look anything like a fat hot dog. They came out looking like mini meatloaves. Also needed a lot more broiling then called for - had to do about 10 minutes on first side and 5 on the second. I'll play with this recipe and make it work but the flavor alone gives it 4 stars and warrants it a keeper!

    I make this quite often. The only difference is, I make a sauce that goes with it. It consists of cucumber, dill and plain yogurt. It makes this dish extra tasty!
