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.
