Kafta Kabob (aka Kafta or Kofta Kebob)
Recipe by my friend Afaf at Simply Heaven
2 Pounds ground beef
1 bunch of parsley finely chopped washed and well drained
1 Onion finely chopped
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tea spoon all spice
1/2 tea spoon paprika
1/2 tea spoon black pepper
1/2 tea spoon cumin
Salt to your taste
Mix all ingredients, work it like dough and make sure press a little tight so it can stick to the skewer.

Kababs on a stick. Nice!
Thanks for sharing the recipe!
So delicious! I’ve never actually tried these with beef (usually eat lamb). Can’t wait to try!
I haven’t had kofta since I lived in Jordan, I miss it so much! I should definitely try this!
The kebobs look great! I’ve been looking for a good recipe for these for a while now. Thanks!
Kebabs look fantastic! Love the spicing.
yummmy…… thanks for ur tips i’d love to follow u.anyway happy new year ~~~~
These just turned out great! My husband is Iraqi so Ive been trying to learn more middle eastern food, he said they were awesome. I’m happy, thanks for the recipe.
Made these for company last night, everyone really liked them. Added a chopped up leftover kabob to an omelette this morning and it was tasty. I figure the remaining two kabobs will be a great addition to lentil soup. Thanks!
