Yummy Recipe Wednesday! (Kafta)

Welcome everyone to another Yummy Recipe Wednesday. Today I bring you a recipe for Kafta which is a Lebanese beef kabob. The combination of flavors in this meat are really just out of this world and you will definitely have friends and family requesting the recipe. Traditionally the way you eat Kafta is to take a piece of pita bread and wrap it around the skewer and pull the skewer out while gripping the meat with the bread. You would dress these almost like a Greek Gyro by topping it with tomato, onion, and then either a Tahini sauce or Tzatziki sauce. This meat mixture can be used to make delicious burgers as well. Give this recipe a try for yourself and I promise you won't be disappointed. As always, feel free to post comments below and be sure to follow @RecipeBlogger on Twitter if you're aren't already so you don't miss a single post.


  • 1 1/2 lbs Lean Ground Beef
  • 1 medium Onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup Fresh Parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Allspice
  • 1 tsp Salt, to taste
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 6 Wooden or Metal Skewers

1. Preheat an outdoor or indoor grill for high heat; if using wooden skewers, soak them in water.
2. In a large bowl mix together the ground beef, onion, parsley, cayenne, allspice, salt and pepper until evenly blended.
3. Divide the meat mixture into 6 portions, and press around one end of the skewers to form a log shape approximately 1 inch thick and 6 inches long. (Alternatively you can make meatballs and skewer 4 or 5 meatballs per skewer.)
4. Grill for 10 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally, until meat is no longer pink.
