Kebabs

I know this looks a little bit like poop but I promise this is delicious. I again had a craving for something middle eastern so I decided to make kebabs which are no harder to make than regular meatballs or burgers. The trick is to use a lot of spices and fresh herbs. My grocery store does not carry ground lamb (which is what traditional kebabs are made of) so I had to use ground beef. Both are good but in my opinion lamb is more juicier and tender for grilling. You can use any other meat if you prefer it to beef or lamb and serve the kebabs on skewers or wrapped in pitas.

Ingredients: 1 onion roughly chopped,3 pressed garlic cloves, fresh bunches of mint, french bunches of parsley, 1 lb ground lamb or beef, 1/2 tablespoon cumin, 1/2 tablespoon paprika, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper

Begin by adding the chopped onion and pressed garlic to a food processor or, in my case, blender

Add mint to the blender

Add fresh parsley. Blend until combined together. Add olive oil if needed.

Add ground meat to a bowl. Add cumin, paprika, salt and pepper.

Top with the mint/parsley mixture. Mix together

Form into rounded kebabs and lay on a baking sheet (if baking like me) or place a skewer through (if grilling).

Bake or grill until cooked. Served with rice or any other side or in a pita with hummus. Enjoy hot.
