The yummiest preparation mixture for ground beef EVER! I have made this Lebanese Meat for all of my friends and family and have HAD to leave the recipe with everyone! Meat mixture can be used for everything... meatballs, meatloaf, BBQ skewers, BBQ'd hamburgers. FOR BEST, AUTHENTIC LEBANESE TASTE, DO NOT OMIT OR SUBSTITUTE INGREDIENTS (until you have made it this way ;P )

Directions

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat. If using wooden skewers, soak in water.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, onion, parsley, cayenne, allspice, salt and pepper until evenly blended. Divide into 6 portions, and press around one end of the skewers to form a log shape approximately 1 inch thick and 6 inches long.
  3. Grill for 10 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally, until meat is no longer pink.

This is my "secret recipe" for perfectly seasoned, perfectly juicy hamburgers. Everyone that tries them asks what's in them, but I never tell! They taste just as good made on the stove top with a grill pan, and they're ready in a snap. Awesome recipe!

This was soooo good!! Tastes just like the way my mom makes it. I doubled the allspice because I didnt think what the recipe called for was enough. I chopped the parsley and onion in the food processor and shaped Kafta into small patties. Cooked them on my george foreman grill. Next time I will add some chopped garlic to the mixture, but this was very very good!! Thanks :)

Very flavorful and gourmet tasting with very little work. Ground whole allspice in the food processor then added onion and parsley, then burger. Second time, added a tiny bit extra finely chopped red bell peppers, celery, onions, and garlic to the meat with the parsley and made it into patties with vegetable kabobs on the side. Must chill for a little bit for it to hold. Wow!
