Instructions
  1. Combine in a large bowl: 16 ounces ground beef, 1/4 cup diced re pepper, 1/4 cup diced red onion, 2 smashed cloves garlic, a dash of seasoned salt, 1 T minced mint, 1/2 tsp ground smoked paprika, 1 egg, 1/4 cup breadcrumbs, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/8 tsp ground fennel, 1/8 tsp allspice, 1/4 tsp coriander, 1/2 tsp cumin, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 cup minced flat leaf parsley and 1 T plain greek yogurt, Mix it all up until well incorporated, but be careful not to over mix so as to kill the lightness and texture of your kofta.
  2. From there, depending on how you want to serve them, if you’re going for patties, grab a little handful of meat, and smash into a round patty, if you’re doing burgers, make them a bit bigger
  3. After that, heat a skillet over medium high heat with a little bit of oil and pan fry your kofta on each side, getting a good caramelization on the outside and cooking to desired doneness in the center. There certainly could be grilled, too.
  4. Once they are cooked, serve them over a bed of your choice of grains, sautéed zucchini, and drizzled with yogurt sauce (blend together 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt, 1 T mint, 1 tsp lemon juice, 1 clove garlic and salt to taste). Garnish with more parsley.
