Oregano Beef Koftas

Author: Canadian Living

Middle East-inspired skewers are quite the meal when tucked into Grilled Greek Pitas along with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes and Yogurt Dip (see below). Eat them with a knife and fork or make them a hands-only supper.

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 minced cloves of garlic
  • 1 small onion minced
  • 1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 lb lean ground beef

Method

In large bowl, mix together garlic, onion, bread crumbs, oregano, 2 tbsp (25 mL) water, mustard, cinnamon, cumin, salt and pepper; mix in beef. Divide into 8 portions; shape each around 8-inch (20 cm) metal or soaked wooden skewer, pressing to form 4-inch (10 cm) sausage-shaped oval.

Place on greased grill over medium- high heat; close lid and grill, turning twice, until firm and no longer pink inside, about 7 minutes.
