Easy Beef Kafta


image

This is my no fuss & fast way to make kafta.

Kafta is a Lebanese dish that’s made with either lamb or beef and formed into a long meat roll and placed on a bamboo skewer.  It’s time consuming like any good dish is but I came up with a quick and easy way to prep this without any skewers.

Ingredients:
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
1 medium onion, grated
1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Preparations:

In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, onion, parsley, cayenne, allspice, salt and pepper until evenly blended.  Line a cookie sheet with plastic wrap, place meat on cookie sheet, evenly press down the meat.  Then, with a spatula, score meat into 2′ square portions. (I don’t use I knife since it’ll cut the plastic wrap.)  Place in fridge for 2-3 hours so meat can firm up.  At this time you can prep your salad and other veggies that you’d like to have for dinner.

Grill for 10 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally, until meat is no longer pink.

Serve with hummus and salad.
