As the weather is starting to brighten up, we thought we’d light our Big Green Egg BBQ, and pop these on to cook.

Nothing quite beats the smell of Syn Free Beef Kofta Kebabs cooking on hot coals. Nothing at all! All those herbs and spices heating up, the sizzle, the spit of the coal.

Oh, you could also cook these on a gas BBQ, we just like that smokey-ness you get with a charcoal BBQ.

You don’t have to cook these Syn Free Beef Kofta Kebabs on the BBQ at all if you don’t like to. It’s not as if we often get the nice weather for it either. You can always cook them in the oven, or even in a griddle pan.

Some of you love this Syn Free Beef Kofta Kebabs recipe!

What do I need to make Syn Free Beef Kofta Kebabs?

There aren’t that many things you need to make these Syn Free Beef Kofta Kebabs. I’m going to list the ingredients, but you can find the full recipe at the bottom of the page.

Syn Free Beef Kofta Kebabs-slimming-world

You will need;

  • 5% Mined Beef
  • Bamboo skewers
  • An onion, garlic, ginger, herbs and spices

First up 5% Minced Beef

For the 5% Minced Beef, I’d urge you to get hold of one of our Protein Food Shop hampers. They’re packed full of the BEST quality meat we’ve ever come across from an online butcher. The hampers are incredible value for money, working out FAR cheaper than the supermarket.

You’ll find the 5% Mined Beef in a few of our hampers. It’s so lean, so tasty and not gristly at all, so perfect for these Syn Free Beef Kofta Kebabs.

It doesn’t have that horrid vac-pack smell when you open the pack either!

We also have a few exclusive hamper deals available, so it’s well worth checking them out.

The Bamboo Skewers

These will be widely available in supermarkets as soon as Easter comes around. If you can’t wait until then, or if you have a feeling you’ll need lots, then Amazon is your best port of call.

If you don’t think you’ll need a few, then you might want to have a look at our other kebab recipes. You may well be needing a lot of them!

    1. Hi Ruth
      We’ve used 5% beef mince in this recipe because it’s free. You can’t buy 5% lamb mince, the lowest available commercially is 10%, and even that is quite hard to find. The 10% lamb mince would need to be Synned at 1.5 Syns per 100g. 20% lamb mince, which is more commonly available, is Synned at 4.5 Syns per 100g. Thanks for getting in touch. 🙂
