"The yummiest preparation mixture for ground beef EVER! I have made this Lebanese Meat for all of my friends and family and have HAD to leave the recipe with everyone! Meat mixture can be used for everything... meatballs, meatloaf, BBQ skewers, BBQ'd hamburgers. FOR BEST, AUTHENTIC LEBANESE TASTE, DO NOT OMIT OR SUBSTITUTE INGREDIENTS (until you have made it this way ;P )" — Lebanese Cuisine

1 1/2 pounds
lean ground beef
finely chopped fresh parsley
salt, or to taste
6 wooden or metal skewers
This is my "secret recipe" for perfectly seasoned, perfectly juicy hamburgers. Everyone that tries them asks what's in them, but I never tell! They taste just as good made on the stove top with a grill pan, and they're ready in a snap. Awesome recipe!
These taste like a regular burger... they are yummy, don't get me wrong. But they were not spectacular nor did they taste particularly 'ethnic.'
This was soooo good!! Tastes just like the way my mom makes it. I doubled the allspice because I didnt think what the recipe called for was enough. I chopped the parsley and onion in the food processor and shaped Kafta into small patties. Cooked them on my george foreman grill. Next time I will add some chopped garlic to the mixture, but this was very very good!! Thanks :)
Very flavorful and gourmet tasting with very little work. Ground whole allspice in the food processor then added onion and parsley, then burger. Second time, added a tiny bit extra finely chopped red bell peppers, celery, onions, and garlic to the meat with the parsley and made it into patties with vegetable kabobs on the side. Must chill for a little bit for it to hold. Wow!
very delicious and so easy to make
instead of bbq'ing i made them into patties and used my grill pan
excellent recipe, even the kids liked it. We used ground beef and ground lamb (1/2 & 1/2) or just ground beef. great with pilaf. We made into patties, easier than skewers. yum!!!
This was just great. They were hard to handle on metal skewers, so I slid them off and just grilled them on top of the grate. I cut back on the red pepper, but otherwise followed the recipe. Delicious!
