Beef Kofta

I love to cook food that has a bit of spice to it, and am always trying to find 'new' things to cook. When I was in Europe, beef kofta was a staple, sold almost everywhere that had a Moroccan population. I decided to try it myself, and used a recipe from - the exact chef is unknown. I tweaked it a little bit for personal preference, and voila! Beef kofta. It can be served with rice, or pita bread, or really however you like it. I couldn't get the best photos of it, but i promise it is delicious!


  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp ground paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground allspice
  • Salt & freshly ground black pepper

Combine all ingredients into a food processor and blend well. Form into oval-shaped balls and place in fridge for 30 minutes to chill. Meanwhile, soak wooden skewers in water. Thread meat onto skewers and place onto lined baking sheet. Bake in oven at 350 F for 15 minutes. Drain any fat that has formed onto tray and bake another 5 minutes, until meat is thoroughly cooked. Serves 4.
