Persian Kabobs

My husband and I are meat lovers so I make a lot of kabob-type dishes. This recipe is super quick, very easy, and absolutely delicious. It is also ideal if you want that grilled taste, but don't have a grill.


-2 lbs. ground meat (beef, lamb, veal or venison)
-1 packet Sadaf Ground Kabob seasoning (available at your local Indian/Pakistani/Persian/Arab grocer)
-1/3 cup water
-1/4 cup olive oil

*Combine and dissolve seasoning in a bowl with water.
*Let stand for 10 minutes.
*Add ground meat to water and spice mixture and knead in well with hands.
*Add olive oil to meat and work in well.
*Shape kabobs to your liking and place on a metal or glass baking tray that has been lightly greased with olive oil. (Exercise caution if using wooden skewers in the oven as they may trigger you smoke alarm)
*Kabobs may be grilled or broiled by being placed on the middle rack of your oven.
*Turn once after 10 minutes and then remove tray from oven after another 10 minutes.
