Middle Eastern Kofta Kebab Recipe

This amazingly easy-to-make kofta kebab recipe is jam-packed with middle eastern seasonings and spices and seared to perfection.

While traditionally they are served more as meatballs, they are often spread out over a skewer and cooked over the open flame.


– fresh thyme – rosemary leaves – garlic cloves – shallot – extra virgin olive oil – unsalted butter

Add all of the ingredients into a large bowl and thoroughly mix everything together until completely combined. Place in the refrigerator covered for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight.

Remove the meat mixture and take out a large chunk and form it into a tight cylinder. Skewer the meat cylinder and then press and pull it to fit a majority of the skewer.

Repeat until all of the meat has been used. Preheat your grill to 450° to 550° F or a griddle to medium-high heat.

Place the kofta kebabs right onto your grill or griddle and cook for 3-4 minutes or until very browned and cooked throughout.

Remove and serve.
