Easy Homemade Beef Kofta

  • Author: Michelle
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


Units Scale
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 white onion, grated
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp black pepper (omit for AIP)
  • 2 tbsp parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cumin (omit for AIP)
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • Juice and zest of half a lemon

To serve


  1. Using a large bowl, combine the beef, onion, garlic, seasonings, lemon juice, and zest until fully combined.
  2. Using 4-5 soaked wooden skewers, form a handful of the beef mixture on the skewer in a long shape, covering most of the skewer. Repeat for all of the beef mixtures. Transfer to a plate and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  3. Using a grill pan or outdoor grill, set to medium-high heat and grease with oil. Add the beef kofta to the grill surface and grill for about 7-8 minutes on each side, or until fully cooked through.
  4. Serve the beef topped with tzatziki and with a side of vegetables and rice.


To cook in the oven, evenly space the prepared skewers on a parchment-lined baking sheet (with a baking rack if possible) and bake at 350 F for 25 min, or until baked through.
