Ingredients

Kebabs:
4 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon kosher salt, plus a pinch
1 pound ground beef chuck or lamb
3 tablespoons grated onion
3 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
Freshly ground black pepper
Olive oil
Tzatziki
Grilled flat bread of pita


Smash the garlic cloves, sprinkle with a generous pinch of salt, and, with the flat side of a large knife, mash and smear mixture to a coarse paste. Mix the paste and the remaining 1 tablespoon salt with the meat, onion, parsley, and spices.


Line a pan with aluminum foil.


Divide the meat mixture into 28 rough balls.


Shape each piece around the pointed end of a skewer (if using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 15 minutes before use), making a 2-inch oval kebab that comes to a point just covering the tip of the skewer.


Lay the skewers on the pan, cover, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 12 hours.


Heat a grill pan over medium heat or prepare a grill.


Brush the pan lightly with olive oil.


Working a few at a time, grill the kebabs, turning occasionally, until brown all over and just cooked through, about 6 minutes.


Remove from heat and serve with tzatziki and bread.

Notes

Mmmmm...I'm a big fan! Again, not my own recipe, but adjusting the spices can make it your own.
