Ingredients
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, add ground beef, onions, cilantro, salt, sumac, coriander seeds, turmeric, and black pepper. Using your hands, mix spices and herbs into meat until well combined.
  2. Using a fist-size portion of meat, wrap the meat around a metal kabob skewer and spread it out approximately 5-6-inches long. Set aside until all skewers are complete. If you don’t have metal skewers, use the handle of a wooden spoon to create a hole in the center of the meat. (This helps to cook the meat evenly.) Gently pull the meat off of the handle and repeat until all meat is used.
  3. If using an outdoor grill or countertop grill, make sure it is very hot (approx. 300°) before adding the kabobs. Lay kabobs in a single row. Grill 4-5 minutes or until it is nicely browned, turn kabobs over and continue to grill an additional 4-5 minutes or until kabob meat cooked through.
  4. Remove from heat and serve with grilled tomato, basmati rice, Maast-O Khiar, and Torshi for a beautiful Persian meal.
Recipe Notes

Recipe Notes:

  • Using ground beef with 80/20 fat content creates a juicer kabob because of the higher fat content.
  • Many Persian Kabob recipes use a combination of beef and lamb for those who like the taste of lamb.
