Whole30 Grilled Kefta Kebab – Paleo

If you’re looking to spice up those packs of ground meat in your fridge (literally and figuratively), give these Grilled Kefta Kebabs a shot. They’re quick, easy, and delicious. Personally, I like using equal parts ground beef and ground lamb, but you’re the boss, applesauce. No matter what you choose, I recommend my two secret ingredients for extra tasty kefta: some baking soda, which tenderizes the meat, and some finely chopped tomato, which keeps the meat super juicy as it cooks!

Try serving the grilled kefta as an appetizer or with my Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Tahini and a chopped salad for some delicious, Middle-Eastern vibes.

I made this recipe last night and took Ronny’s suggestion of using 1 lb lamb and 1 lb grass fed beef. I didn’t have skewers, but I did use a grill pan, and I followed the recipe as written. Talk about outstanding! This is a new favorite and I will make it regularly.

So delicious!!
I popped them in the oven for ease and served with a whole 30 style dill mayo sauce, roasted peppers and onions and beets! Half lamb half beef so tender and juicy, thanks

I did not have sumac, I just added a little lemon juice and lemon zest. They were still really good. I will make again, but use less salt. They were a tad salty to me. Thank you for the recipe!

Fantastic recipe! We’ve made this many times already. If you can, make a double batch, you’ll be so happy to have leftovers 🙂
