Moroccan Ground Beef Kebab / Skewers

"Ground beef kebabs can be bought from street vendors in Morocco. They are served with thick bread instead of utensils. Moroccans use the bread to break off a chunk of meat & then pop it into their mouth. (The times listed does not included 1 hour in the fridge.)"

Ready In:




  • Combine the beef, onion, parsley, cilantro, & spices in a large bowl, refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Wash your hands but don't dry them. Gently pack small amounts of the meat mixture around the skewers, forming a 4-inch long sausage shape on each skewer.
  • Grill over charcoal, turning the kebab time to time so not to burn. Cook throughly. Serve with Recipe #260654 or some other dense bread.

    Good stuff. Made it, served it, got huge compliments on it. I used 1 tsp of salt and blk pepper instead of 1/2 tsp. Also added a tbsp of oil. Very tasty. I might put a bit more cayenne pepper in next time to give it a little more kick.

    Very flavoursome and honestly the best homemade kebabs I have ever had! DH, DD (toddler) and I like these. I used lean ground beef but I suggest using regular as they were a little dry and had trouble staying on the skewers. I have done them in the frying pan with some butter! I did not use any cayenne pepper as we dont like hot spicy. I used recipe #262189. I do add a bit more fresh cilantro to the meat mixture. I serve them with additional fresh cilantro, tomato slices sprinkled with sea salt and a squeeze of fresh lemon, helmans olive oil mayonnaise (soy free) (another time I served with hummus but still prefer mayonnaise) and lettuce. I used a wheat free flat bread to wrap them all up in. The time I pan fried we had them with rice. I have also done these in an oven on broil. I will make these again. Originally made for Ramadan Tag.

    Very nice version. I liked that it's kicked up a notch on the spice how we like it. I didn't need to use any Harissa. Thank You made for Ramadan Tag 2011

    Really good. A staple in my home now. I have 2 picky teenage sons to feed, so that's saying something.
