Kofta (Cyprus)

Kofta is a popular dish made from grilled ground beef that is served throughout the Middle-East.

Ingredients: Original recipe yields 4 servings

  1. 1 pound ground beef
  2. 1 onion, diced
  3. 1 egg yolk
  4. 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano salt and pepper to taste
  5. 1 bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 20 minutes

Directions/Instructions Checklist

Step 1

In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, onion, egg yolk, oregano, salt and pepper.

Step 2

Pick up medium sized handfuls and press them onto skewers. Roll on a lightly oiled clean surface until the mixture looks like a large ground beef hot dog with about 1 1/2 inches at each end of the skewer. Place your fingers in the middle of the skewer and separate the meat log into two sausages with about 1 inch of skewer sticking out at each end.

Step 3

Prepare a grill for high heat, or if you only have a grill pan, like myself, heat it over medium-high heat.

Step 4

Place the sausages on the grilling surface, and cook for about 10 minutes, turning once or twice for even cooking. Serve immediately.
