Kefta – Morroccan Beef Kabob

For dinner last night, I made what is called Kefta.  They are basically a Moroccan beef kabob, beef mixed with various spices and onion.  I have made them a few times and add different things each time to change it up.  This is last night’s version!

And yes, they do sort of look like “shit on a stick” lol!



These are the ingredients I used.  Very basic.


I chopped the onions and added them to the bowl with the ground beef, then added all the spices.


I mixed it all together until very well combined, divided the mixture into quarters and shaped each quarter into a sort of sausage shape.


I inserted the wooden skewer into each one and placed them into my foil lined pan.


I baked them at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes, until they were well done.


And served them with pasta and veggies.  A delicious and very filling meal.
