Lebanese BBQ - Kafta Recipe

Lebanese BBQ - Kafta Recipe

  • Ingredients

  • Method


  • 500g minced lamb (low fat)

  • ½ large onion

  • ½ bunch flat-leaf parsley

  • ½ tsp dry or fresh mint

  • ¼ kafta spice

  • ¼ tsp black pepper

  • ½ tsp sea salt


Serving suggestion:

  • pita bread

  • Muhammara

  • onion

  • sumac


  • Place the onion in a food processor and pulse for a few seconds, then add the parsley and mint and pulse until evenly distributed. Add the spices.

  • Place the mixture in a bowl, add the minced lamb and mix well with your hands.

  • Dip your hands in cold water to prevent the meat from sticking and mould into sausage-shapes.

  • Place on a barbecue or grill and cook evenly on all sides until they’re golden-brown.


  • Serving suggestion: Spread Muhammara onthe base of a pita. Top with the kafta, then add some raw onion mixed with sumac.

NOTE: Either roll the kafta on skewers to make them easier to handle and turn, or use tongs for turning them.
