Here’s simple dish for those who have ground lamb. Kufta is a dish found in many Israeli menus. Normal kebobs use small cuts of meat but when you use ground lamb, it changes to kufta. What I enjoy about this style is that the pieces fit well in pitas. Yes, I know, pita is not food. For the American palette we’ll just say that pita is food and is really great with kufta, cucumbers, tomatoes, tahini, eggplant, and hummus.
Kufta Kebob Recipe
2 pounds ground lamb
1/3 cup fresh chopped parsley
1 medium diced onion
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon cumin
4 teaspoons minced garlic
Soak your wooden skewers overnight in water. If using metal, you can start right away.
Combine all the ingredients and put in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
Grab your skewer and a handful of mixture.
Wrap the mix around the skewer. It should look like a hotdog on a stick.
Grill for about 3 minutes each side.
Serve with pita, cucumbers, tomatoes, hummus, eggplant, etc…
