Recipe Ingredients for Ground Lamb & Beef Kabobs

1/2 lb. of ground lamb
1/2 lb. of ground beef
1/2 onion, finely minced
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 tsp ground pepper
1 teaspoon minced parsley (fresh, preferably)
1 teaspoon finely chopped mint (fresh, preferably)
2 tablespoons of feta cheese, crumbled
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 egg, beaten

Recipe Directions for Ground Lamb & Beef Kabobs

  1. Line a sieve with cheesecloth or 2 paper towels. Put yogurt in this and allow to drain for 1/2 hour. This will create a thicker tzatziki sauce.

  2. Combine all the ground meat ingredients except egg. Whisk egg and add to ground meat. Use those hands to mix it up ? get in there! Heat up your griddle pan and turn on your overhead fan ? this creates lots of smoke.

  3. Shape the meat into thick, oval shapes. Poke a skewer into the middle of the meat. Once griddle pan is hot, cook meat. Make sure to turn so every side gets cooked (about 45 seconds per side). You want it to be kind of crispy on the outside.

  4. Meanwhile, slice up your garnish ? red onion and lettuce and crumble some more feta.

  5. When tzatziki is drained, transfer to a bowl. Mix in other ingredients and allow to sit while you assemble the kubideh?s/kabobs.

  6. Toast one side of your pita on the griddle pan. If there?s still some ground meat fat on there, allow the pita to soak some of it up while it?s grilling ? about 1 minute.

  7. Layer the ground meat first, topped with some crumbled feta, a squeeze of lemon, lettuce, red onion. On one side of the pita, put 1-2 tablespoons of tzatziki, roll up and ENJOY!!
