There isn’t much more than a love than a kebab. We came up with these Beef Kofta Kebabs as we were developing a lean Doner Kebab recipe, and they are lush!

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

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 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 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.

  1. Shop bought minced lamb is much higher in fat (usually around 20%!)
    I use lamb leg steaks, trimmed of all visible fat and roughly mince it in a food processor ☺️
    A good local butcher will bone, trim and mince a lamb leg for you x
