- 1 pound 85% ground beef
- 1 pound ground lamb
- 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
- 1 cup chopped fresh parsley
- 2 cloves chopped fresh garlic
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon sumac
- 1 teaspoon ground green cardamom
- 1 teaspoon ground allspice
Pre-soak 16 wooden skewers in water for at least 1 hour prior to grilling.
Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Using your hands, fold the spices and herbs into the meat mixture until very well combined.
Divide the meat mixture into 1/4 cup portions (about an average handful of the meat mixture) and press onto the skewer in a log shape.
Grill the kebabs until completely cooked through or until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. Remove the kebabs from the grill, cover with foil and allow them to rest for at least 5 minutes prior to serving.
