Instructions
  1. Finely grate the onions in a food processor or hand grater and pour them into a large bowl.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, cilantro, salt, sumac, coriander seeds, turmeric, lemon pepper, and black pepper and (wearing gloves) hand mix together until completely combined.
  3. Preheat the grill to 350° F.
  4. To make the kebabs, take small amounts of the meat, about the size of a small apple, and shape them into 5-inch cylinders. If you are using metal or wooden skewers, shape the meat tightly around the skewer, pinching the ends closed tightly. Repeat this step until all of the meat is used.
  5. Arrange the kabobs on the grill, leaving 1/2-inch space between each kabob. Grill the meat for 4 to 5 minutes each side, being careful not to overcook the kabobs.
  6. Remove the kabobs from the grill, transfer them to a plate and cover with tin foil to keep warm until ready to serve.
Recipe Notes

Using 80/20 beef keeps the kabobs tender. Using leaner beef gives the dish a much drier texture and taste.
