beef koobideh (persian ground beef kabab)


i love this stuff and i had some ground beef so i chose to make some at home :)

normally, you use a long flat skewer, however, i did not have that and my mixture ended up not being finely ground enough and too mushy, so ... i just winged it and did it "michelle style"

as you will see in the pics below, they look like the "korbumplings" and yes, pretty much is the same concept except for some flavoring differences and what you eat with them

this is a first trial so i think it turned out pretty good for a first try, however, i would leave out the green onions next time and make sure i have some sumac. dill and lemon seem to be a decent replacement for the sumac though :) ... which i ended up adding on top when i ate them

beef koobideh:

  • ground beef
  • in a blender: yellow onion, half a purple onion, green onions, garlic, tumeric, saffron, pepper, salt and eggs

mix ingredients together and make into long ovals, then grill ... frequently flipping ... when they are done, squeeze lemon juice over them and enjoy!

the little kababs came out green because of the green onion haha 

cooked :)

squeeze lemon juice over ... i added some paprika sprinkle on top for color and flavor :)

you can enjoy with some mint leaves and raw onion or make a fabulous salad!

this salad tasted wonderful! spinach, mint, basil, cucumber, tomato, red onion, mushroom, jalepeno, onion sprouts, lemon juice, lime juice, olive oil, pepper, cayenne powder, paprika powder and dried dill
