Moroccan kebab


You’ve probably heard of ‘kefta’ (or kofta) the ubiquitous street food of the Middle East; the word comes from Classical Persian and means “rissole”.  The Moroccan version taste different; they are slightly minty and very aromatic.  I’m sure you’re going to love them - especially drizzled with our herby, homemade yogurt sauce.

Moroccan kefta is ground beef or lamb, or a combination, generously seasoned with fresh herbs and traditional spices. Typically, the meat mixture is then formed onto skewers, like a skinny meatloaf on a stick.

They are really simple to make at home and with your trusty Luvele meat grinder you can even make your kefta mince in bulk, and enjoy later by freezing portions for quick, ready-to-go meals.

Kefta are superb grilled on the BBQ because they get that authentic smoky taste, but they can be cooked on a hot plate or fry pan or even baked in the oven. Serve warm with Middle Eastern salads, quinoa or flatbread with a generous dollop of yogurt sauce. If you are avoiding dairy, the herb yogurt sauce tastes just as wonderful made with coconut yogurt.
