How to make a Kofta Kebab
You can shape your Beef Kofta Recipe like ours and leave as is, or you can insert a skewer/kebab stick into them. We have always made them without the stick since we would stuff them right into a pita to eat. Less waste this way, unless you use metal kebab skewers.
I just love making food that I grew up on – especially for my family! The way we would enjoy this was with a homemade pita, hummus, Mediterranean rice and Israeli Salad. You could our beef kofta with a simple shopska salad.
The smell of this dish cooking is just delightful, and you’ll be anxiously waiting to bite for the entire time it’s cooking. Once they’re done you can dig right in and enjoy as you’d like.
