Servings: 5 - 6 Kebabs
Ingredients
  • 1 pound / 500 g Ground beef
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Tomato puree
  • 1 egg
  • Salt & pepper for seasoning
  • leaves Generous handful of flat leaf parsley chopped finely and or fresh basil
  • Handful of mushrooms chopped finely
  • 1/4 Red chili pepper mild heat
  • 1/4 Green chili pepper mild heat
  • 3 cloves garlic chopped finely
  • 1 medium white onion
  • 1 Teaspoon Mixed spice or Pumpkin spice.
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil for cooking
Instructions
  1. Firstly, finely chop all the ingredients that need to be chopped. I like to add everything to a food processor and set on pulse setting until all finely chopped.
  2. In a large bowl, add all the ingredients and use your hands to mix everything in. Keep mixing for a good 2-3 minutes as this will help to incorporate everything and tenderise the meat.
  3. Get a tray or plate and place some foil to cover it and oil the surface.
  4. If using wooden skewers, soak them in some water to stop them from burning on the grill.
  5. Depending on how many skewers you wish to make, you can do long or short kebabs. Here, I made long ones. Take a handful of the mix and mould it around each skewer into a sausage shape. Squeeze a little to get the meat to shape and stay on the skewer. You might want to roll it on a flat surface to get a smooth shape.
  6. Cover the kebabs and leave in the fridge to firm up a little, about 30 -60 minutes, or longer if possible.
  7. When you are ready for the BBQ, brush the tops of the kebabs with oil and roll them over. Make sure the entire surface has a little oil to prevent sticking. Then lift the kebabs using the foil and place on the grill with the foil under. I have used foil on the grill as the kebabs are a little delicate and may fall apart if you are not careful. Once the kebabs have cooked a little, you can turn them over and cook all sides until done. As they cook, the kebabs will firm up and not be so delicate to turn.
  8. If using a hotplate or other cooking method, you do not need foil, this is just to stop the kebabs breaking up and falling through the grill!
