This week we bring you The Flavor Chef rendition of lamb kofta kebabs. This dish is Middle Eastern in origin and features ground lamb seasoned with Mediterranean spices of coriander and cumin. We have also added fresh mint and fresh parsley. The kofta is formed into the shape of an uncased smashed hot dog.
Lamb can tend to have a strong flavor for some people so you can substitute with 50% beef and the strong flavor of the lamb will be reduced. But for lamb lovers, use 100% lamb to achieve excellent results. Grass fed beef and lamb are now wildly available and highly recommended. We've added our signature Organic Grass Fed & Grass Finished Beef Bone Broth to the sauté to deglaze the pan, add moisture, and add flavor. This recipe makes great lamb meatballs as well.
