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.
