Author Notes: I learned how to make these kebob's years ago from a Persian friend, It's simple to make, very tasty and can either be grilled on the stovetop or on the BBQ. You can serve as featured on warm flat bread or with steamed rice. Either way its delicious. You don't have to use beef, ground lamb is good and you can also use ground turkey.The kebobs are delicious with sumac sprinkled on after grilling, I say it's optional but if you can find it I highly recommend. sdebrango

Makes: at least a dozen

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds ground beef (preferably organic grass fed) you can also use ground lamb
  • 1 onion grated on the largest grate and drained of juices
  • 2 egg yolks
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • sumac (optional but highly recommended) to sprinkle on meat after cooking)
  • 2 small cucumbers diced
  • 2 tomatoes diced
  • 1 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried mint
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Grate the onion and drain, I squeezed it in a double paper towel. Put the onion in a mixing bowl, add the beef, egg yolks and some salt and pepper, Mix well. Refrigerate for 1 hour
  2. If you are using bamboo skewers submerge in water while the meat is resting in the refrigerator. Dice the cucumbers, parsley and tomatoes, add the lemon juice and season with mint, salt and pepper. Form meat onto skewers whatever size you want, heat your grill and place meat skewers onto grill. You want the meat cooked medium done. Let grill 3-4 minutes on each side turning over once. Test for doneness, just poke with your finger it should feel firm but not dry.
  3. Remove from heat and tent with foil while you prepare your bread. Grill the bread either on the burner or in a pan, brush with olive oil and lay kebab onto bread, sprinkle with a little sumac (optional) and spoon some of the cucumber and tomato on top.
  4. Suggestions for other garnishes: Crumbled feta cheese, plain yogurt mixed with cucumber and mint.

This looks so good! It reminds me of the kathi rolls that I used to gorge on in India!

So glad to see this one again. Just saved it to my "must try soon" collection. My boys are going to love these! (I can easily see them becoming my new go-to for the grill.) :o)
